A film that asks, are we alone?

(United States, 2022, 88 minutes, color) Directed by Caroline Cory.

A Tear in "the Sky" explores the field of Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (known formerly as UFOs)— a subject that is generating considerable mainstream interest since the release of previously classified U.S. government videos, and the creation by the Pentagon of a UAP Task Force in August 2020.


Starring William Shatner of Star Trek and celebrity physicist Michio Kaku, the film follows a team of military personnel and scientists— including two University at Albany physics professors, Kevin Knuth and Matthew Szydagis— as they attempt to re-capture, in real time, evidence of UFOs and other space anomalies, using state-of-the-art, military-grade equipment and technology.
