A still from Mirage Men, which will premiere at the Sheffield Doc/Fest

This week has been so hot in Ireland eggs were frying on stones and Toblerone has been melting on window sills before 10am. To compound my exquisite good luck, I’ve also been privvy to some exclusive previews of the Sheffield Doc/Fest which opens this week.

The first documentary I was enthralled by was called Mirage Men. The film, which will premiere worldwide this week at the festival, is easily one of the most intriguing documentaries I’ve seen in a while.

Correctly described as a blend between Close Encounters of the Third Kind and the Manchurian candidate, Mirage Men spins a dark yarn of unexplained phenomena and of belief manipulation by higher powers which will leave you wondering which part of what you’re seeing and hearing is real. And you may never find out.
