Project documents UFO sightings

NWT - Tulita-born filmmaker Raymond Yakeleya is working on his latest project under the name of X111th Hour. The project follows stories he has heard about UFO sightings across Alberta and NWT. Some of the stories include going to cattle mutilation sights in which animals are found mysteriously dead and bloodless without any marks. It also touches on crop circles, alien abduction and sasquatch. Yakeleya is still in the early stages of the project and will work on it further throughout the year, he said.

The exhibit was featured in Fort Smith earlier this year and includes photos of life growing up in the Mackenzie Valley over the past 100 years. One picture dates back as early as 1901 in Fort Resolution, going up to 1993. The three panels of photography are on display at the library until the end of this month.
