Apollo astronaut and sixth man on the moon, Dr. Edgar Mitchell, has provided unprecedented access to independent filmmaking team. After a year of filming, they are turning to Kickstarter to bring film to completion.
Edgar Mitchell is no stranger to controversy, raising eyebrows with his views on consciousness, extraterrestrials, and the paranormal. Now 83, Mitchell has opened his doors to two documentary filmmakers who are promising the most in-depth and heartfelt look at an American hero to date, with numerous never before heard details about his days in NASA and beyond.
With countless accolades to his name, including The Presidential Medal of Freedom and a Nobel Peace Prize nomination, Mitchell can trace it all back to the oneness epiphany he had on his return from the moon in 1971.
“We went to the Moon as technicians; we returned as humanitarians.” – Dr. Edgar Mitchell
Upon his return, Mitchell immediately got to work, founding the non-profit Institute of Noetic Sciences to study consciousness and parapsychology. He began giving philosophical lectures, warning about sustainability, collaborating with the likes of Uri Geller, and sharing his knowledge of UFO’s and extraterrestrials. Other events covered in the documentary include Mitchell healing himself of cancer and pursuing zero point energy.
Filmmakers Antares Davis and Cameron Jutte are hoping to finish production within 6 months, provided they have success on crowdfunding website, Kickstarter.com. The documentary is titled, “The Space Less Traveled.” A preview video can be seen on their Kickstarter page: kck.st/1ysB9VV
The funding deadline is August 15, 2014.
