Movie with an Ufological theme, 4 September 2004
Author: Paulo R. C. Barros ( from São Paulo, Brazil

"Platillos Volantes" (2003 - 99 minutes), written and directed by the Spanish director Óscar Aibar, is a movie with an Ufological theme. The plot is inspired in a real history occurred in Terrassa, a Catalan industrial city, in 1972, when two textile workers, Juan Teru Vallés (21 years) and José Félix Rodríguez Montero (47 years), had been found decapitated on the railway of the Barcelona-Zaragoza train. They had left the following message: "The extraterrestrials call us, we belong to infinite". Some time later, posthumous letters sent by them to the ONU General- Secretary and to the Spanish investigators of the UFO phenomenon were found. Adopting the pseudonyms of Rasdi and Amiex, "trackers of the infinite and friends of extraterrestrial intelligences", the suicidal ones had described in the letters the incredible mutation that their bodies had suffered and had informed to be preparing a definitive trip to Jupiter where they believed was the location of the alien base. Essential for all those that research Ufology, the plot remembers the Brazilian controverted "Case of the Lead Masks" of 1966.
