Farewell Good Brothers is an off-beat, irreverent and often hilarious portrait of a few people who, back in the 1950’s, claimed to have been contacted friendly visitors from the planet Venus. Theirs is a world of mysterious government conspiracies, strange religious rites and unbelievable close encounters; a world inhabited by an assortment of charlatans, true believers, Christian fundamentalists, and messianic cults. Through contemporary interviews and a wide assortment of unusual archival imagery, the film examines the role of these so-called ‘Contactees’ in pioneering much of contemporary Flying Saucer mythology. With it’s emphasis on the political and religious motivations of these people and it’s visual depiction of their beliefs, FAREWELL, GOOD BROTHERS is unique in both style and content.
Farewell Good Brothers was digitally re-mastered to HD and enhanced with new graphics and effects and a new original score. The work was completed by Robert Stone Productions in October 2007.
