Review by Christine Gertz
Winner of an EBE award from the International UFO Congress Film Festival, What on Earth? Inside the Crop Circle Mystery documents the appearance of crop circles, focusing on the highly active area for these phenomena in southern England. The documentary includes interviews with many of the leading lights of crop circle study, including Allan Brown, Michael Glickman, Isabelle Kingston, Diahann Hughes and Daniel Pinchbeck.
The documentary begins with the appearance of crop circles in Carson’s field in England, and explores the crop circles as art, as geometry, the issue of crop circle hoaxes, and the ultimately hopeful meaning of the crop circle phenomena. Some of the aerial footage of the crop circles is spectacular, especially for the viewer who is new to the phenomena and the number of appearances and designs found within crop circles.
Though there are some issues with production-shaky footage, strange framing, interference of background noise and poor lighting conditions-this documentary would be of interest to “croppies”, or persons interested in crop circle phenomena, viewers interested in UFO phenomena or people who include mandalas, mazes and labyrinths in their spiritual practice.
