Daniel Pace is a Director, Writer, Producer, Editor, Cinematographer, Art Director, and software developer. His latest movie, Appearance of a Man, centers on a priest who begins to experience strange phenomena beginning the night of the Phoenix Lights UFO sightings.

Things are perhaps much more complicated and wonderful than they appear. Daniel will talk to us about his film, the themes he included, and his more holistic perspective on UFOs and other phenomena. He will also give our listeners a chance to see his movie online for free. http://www.theappearanceofaman.com/
