The Search for the Profound with Caroline Cory’s Tear in the Sky, An Interview

18 May

Caroline Cory

Caroline Cory’s interest in parapsychology has always been constant while growing up, and to see her enthusiasm is key to why her documentaries must be watched. We see her wanting to learn more about what it all means. Whether that’s with testing people for their PSI ability in Superhuman or simply examining this mysterious world in works from her own production company, Omnium Media. there’s something to think about. Her latest, Tear in the Sky, concerns the strange aircraft known as Tic Tac UFOS often seen around Catalina Island.

She got to talk to the various members of the crew from the USS Nimitz since they were near, and to focus on this particular incident may well get the federal government to open up.

“They were on those ships in 2004,” said Cory, “And we had a huge amount of equipment, some even military-grade, to observe in real time. We got crazy stuff–amazing anomalies. My film takes a totally different approach to ufology.”

The federal reports have not made a full disclosure. There’s people from Avalon, a township on that island, and It’s not just them wanting answers about the fairy lights. Others who live or are stationed nearby are curious.

It’s a phenomenon everyone wants further understanding on. Everyone is asking how do they fly? The way they skirt the sky can’t be done based on humanity’s current understanding of physics. A less asked question is why is this area so special? Cory believes the aliens have their agenda and are doing their thing without too much concern about a “Prime Directive,” a concept well known amongst Star Trek fans. It’s not necessary about space tourism either, but rather in what they find fascinating. Parts of Catalina Island have a military history and it may well play a role to why alien ships are often spotted here.

Genre Picks of the 37th L.A. Asian Pacific Film Festival

2 Sep

Runs Sept 23 to Oct 2, 2021
Tickets are available to purchase starting Sept 13, 2021 at 12:00pm PT.

The 37th Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival is back as both an online and in-person event! Some films will be available across the nation to view and others geo-locked to this municipality.

One work to take note of is the Los Angeles premiere of the documentary Wuhan Wuhan. This film examines the global health issue as it unfolded from February and March of last year and instead of a dire warning, Yung Chang’s (Up the Yangtze) direction offers a humanitarian message. Anyone wanting a fresh look at the situation may well want to consider this documentary as part of their viewing schedule.

Although much of the California state is not under lockdown, attendees are asked to still observe safety protocols. The in person events are likely to be attendance capped, and no matter what happens as the world enters the Autumn season, the organizers are committed to recognizing talents who are making an impact in the community as, so the saying goes, “navigate strange times.” 

On that note, the genre picks for this year include:

The Vintage Tempest’s Picks of the Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival

Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film FestivalBy Ed Sum
(The Vintage Tempest)


Runs Sept 24 to Oct 31

The complete lineup of the 36th Annual Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival is here! The list is extensive and to figure out what to see for its virtual event took more than days to figure out. Because of this event being region specific, most of these movies are geolocked to those residing in the county to see. However, with a lot of film festivals offering an online component, it’s safe to assume that these films will become available for another region in no time. Failing that, some works are already available on home video for purchase in the country it was made.

Over 225 filmmakers will be featured in the five weeks which starts very soon! There’s three feature film world premieres and plenty of shorts to see.

Disneyland’s Galaxy’s Edge expands Jan 17th! Are We Ready for It?

14 Jan

null 2By Ed Sum
(The Vintage Tempest)

These are not the lightsabers I’m looking for. After the excitement of seeing the final film of the cinematic Star Wars saga, the excitement and fervor of wanting to hop the next plane to Anaheim to enjoy Galaxy’s Edge at Disneyland is half and half.

According to CNBC:

…more guests will flock to the two lands after the opening of the Rise of the Resistance ride. The ride will open in Orlando on Dec 5 And in Anaheim on Jan 17.

This new combination coaster and live action show will be crazy. Those who want to be on this ride already bought their tickets for the queue, and I can’t simply travel down on a whim and expect to get in on that day. I know this performance theatre experience puts Universal Studios’ T2 3-D: Battle Across Time from years ago to shame. It’s sad that park attraction shut down.
