Local UFO believer in film about extraterrestrial lover Klarer

2010-05-25 00:00

THE story of a Natal-born woman, Elizabeth Klarer, and her alleged love affair with and impregnation by an alien is being documented by a local production company, Towerkop Creations.

Written in the 1950s, Klarer’s book Beyond the Light Barrier centres on her relationship with an extraterrestrial being named Akon, but it is also a book about humanity and our connection to Earth.

The documentary, which will be called The Incredible Lightness of Beings, will focus on the extraterrestrial story “tied with South Africa’s take on global warming, nuclear weapons, weather war, the growing global environmental crisis and clean energy”, said Uga Carlini, who conceptualised the documentary.

Carlini, who is also the director, screenwriter and producer of this documentary, is working with four colleagues who pitched in for free. They are using Klarer’s story to spread the message that “a good planet is hard to find”.

Featured in the film, and concentrating on the extraterrestrial angle of the story is Maritzburger Kitty Smith.

Smith (79) was a friend of Klarer and is sharing the knowledge she passed to her with the film crew. She said she has always been interested in “the unknown” and started Pietermaritzburg’s first UFO club in 1958.

She met Klarer later in her life, and says the “space traveller” changed her life.

“Her story was true; they were soul mates,” said Smith, who claims to have seen a UFO at Champagne Castle in the Drakensberg.

This is the same place Klarer met Akon every year between 1954 and 1963 around April 7.

“Elizabeth told me that she arranged my sighting. She told Akon about how I supported her even when others ridiculed her and that I had never seen a UFO myself,” said Smith.

This information, along with many other conversations Smith had with Klarer and Smith’s own beliefs about the subject, will appear in the documentary.

The protagonist in the film is Klarer’s Earth-bound son, David Klarer. It will also feature Smith, geologist Professor van Riet of the Peace Parks Foundation, the Reverend Rodney Whiteman and SA Astronomical Observatory astronomer Professor Enrico Olivier.

Carlini said: “These are just a few of the world-renowned contributors we have lined up. Furthermore, top- secret documents and personal photos that have never been revealed to the public before have been handed to us, containing some startling revelations. For example, Project Blue Book, air force documents ... affidavits by General Idi Amin.”

The crew plans to have the film done by the end of the year. “We want to take this to the Oscars,” said Carlini.

The Incredible Lightness of Beings is looking for any kind of financial help to make this film an award winner. Interested parties can contact line producer Dennis Vidulin at dennis.vidulin@murrob.com
