The Life After Death Project 3:
The Sedona International Film Festival is proud to present “The Life After Death Project” – a three-part documentary series by filmmaker Paul Davids. Part 3: Seance Encounters will show at 4 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 10 at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre, followed by a panel discussion.
“The Life After Death Projects 1, 2 and 3” present some of the best evidence for life after death, survival of consciousness, and credible scientific evidence of communication with those who have passed on to “The Other Side”.
Three universities were involved in studying the evidence, including a program at the University of Arizona in Tucson that tested the accuracy of some remarkable psychic mediums. Authors Richard Matheson, Whitley Strieber, Dannion Brinkley, Forrest J Ackerman, Michael Shermer, John Alexander and Gary Schwartz are featured in the films – and you’ll even see Sherlock Holmes creator Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. You’ll hear from doctors, nurses, archaeologists, physicists, a retired U.S. Army colonel and people from all walks of life who testify to contact they had with deceased loved ones.
The Life After Death Project 3: Seance Encounters
Saturday, Dec. 10 at 4 p.m.
This sequel to “The Life After Death Project 1 and 2” focuses on four days and three nights in which a team of a dozen scientists, psychic mediums, authors and other researchers explore extensive reports of paranormal activity at the former home of sci-fi icon Forrest J Ackerman. The late Rosemary Guiley, author of 61 books on the paranormal, provides major contributions. In the final night at the house (known as the Ackermansion), two mediums (Susanne Wilson and Jamie Clark) conduct a seance organized by Gary Schwartz, Ph.D., author and psychology professor from Harvard, who has studied psychic mediums for two decades at the University of Arizona, Tucson. Significant inexplicable paranormal phenomena occurs.
Post-film panel discussion will include Arizona psychics Susanne Wilson and Jamie Clarke, and University of Arizona biomedical professors Dieter and Netzin Steklis who participated in one of the most remarkable seances ever filmed. Filmmakers Paul and Hollace Davids will moderate.
