"Moment of Contact is an exploration of extraterrestrial encounters, this one centered on a series of events in 1996 when citizens of Varginha, Brazil, reported seeing one or more strange creatures and a UFO crash. A number of locals, including a group of girls ranging in age from 14-21, had a close encounter with a being described as about 4 feet tall, with brown oily skin, a large head and huge red eyes. The town of Varginha was cordoned off by military and emergency response teams and two creatures were captured. Local military policeman Marco Cherese died under mysterious circumstances after allegedly handling one of the creatures. Fox’s documentary features interviews with key eyewitnesses, experts and officials including nuclear physicist and professional ufologist Stanton Friedman, Brazilian Air Force General Jose Carlos Pereira, Brazilian ufologist Ademar Jose Gevaerd.

"The most awaited documentary on the 1996 Brazil UFO incident has finally been published. Filmmaker James Fox’s “Moment of Contact” concluded with testimony that a crashed UFO in Varghina Brazil was ultimately loaded onto a USAF cargo plane and brought back to (assumedly) the United States. Moreover, he shared exclusive information about the case on his recent “Ask Me Anything” on Reddit.

In 1996, some bizarre UFO phenomena took place in Varginha, a city in Brazil, where many locals claimed to have seen two alien creatures, captured by the Brazilian military. On January 20, 1996, North American Air Defense Command (NORAD) transmitted accurate radar data on a flying object south of Minas Gerais to its colleagues at Brazil’s CINDACTA aerial surveillance center.

Ufologist Roger Leir was the first to reveal the bizarre details of the case. He visited Varginha shortly after the incident. Then, he published the book “UFO Crash in Brazil.”

When the police arrived, they immediately opened fire on the aliens, and one of them got injured. Then, the injured alien was taken to the local hospital, about 1.5 kilometers from Varginha. According to the hospital staff, an entire wing of the hospital was closed, and the hospital itself was literally packed with military personnel in full ammunition. Doctors tried to save the creature, but it died. Its death was recorded on January 22, 1996. More than a dozen specialists, including genetics, took part in the subsequent autopsy. They found out that the alien had a black tongue, the absence of genitals, and a navel. After the autopsy, the dead alien was placed in a wooden coffin, the lid of which was secured with screws.

But even if it is all fiction, it is still among the best pieces of science fiction ever written. A quarter century later, nearly everyone who hears the witnesses recount their account is persuaded they are speaking the truth. Now, the most compelling evidence that extraterrestrials exist, have visited Earth, and have even perished here is presented in the new documentary “Moment of Contact” (now available on Amazon, Apple TV+, and AmazonPrime Video).

Retired Brazilian Air Force General Jose Carlos Pereira told Fox in the documentary that “Governments tend to cover up everything they can’t explain to their population.” Whereas a university professor and amateur ultralight pilot Carlos de Sousa claimed to have seen the crash on January 13, 1996, in Varginha, Brazil..." from the article: Filmmaker James Fox Claims ’35-Sec Video Of Alien Exists’ From Brazil 1996 UFO Crash
