For more than 20 years the CIA used psychic abilities operationally in a top secret spy program. You paid for it, and now you deserve to know about it. After an experiment in psychic abilities at SRI reveals a top secret NSA site, the two physicists behind it all are co-opted by the CIA and the amazing work of their psychic spies is silenced by the demands of ‘national security.’ When America’s greatest psychic spy dies mysteriously, and is accused of treason, it spurs program co-founder Russell Targ to fight to get this work declassified, even if it means going directly to his former enemies in the Soviet Union, to the CIA and beyond to prove the reality of ESP.
This film presents the true story of physicist Russell Targ, his cold war psychic spies and his fight to bring this information public, with evidence presented by a Nobel Laureate, an Apollo Astronaut, and many formerly undercover military “remote viewers”, CIA agents and scientists that worked for the U.S. Intelligence community. They are now able to speak, supporting the reality and usefulness of psychic abilities for the first time.
Third Eye Spies is a new documentary feature film by award winning director Lance Mungia. The film consists of compellingly cinematic re-enactments of actual remote viewings done at SRI for intelligence agencies, new data retrieved from recently declassified documents via Freedom of Information Act and over 30 interviews with every top player involved and how those discoveries are being used today. Whether psi is used to find your house keys, make money on Wall Street, find a kidnapped general, or a downed bomber, Russell Targ’s understated mantra that “the evidence for extra sensory perception is overwhelming and shows a talent we all share and deserve to know about. And perhaps most importantly gives us a greater understanding of who we are.”
Producer Russell Targ co-founded the Stanford Research Institute’s ESP research program that pioneered research into remote viewing, and worked for every major intelligence agency of the U.S. Government. Targ, a physicist, also pioneered the earliest development of the laser, and has since written several successful books on the subject of ESP and remote viewing applications.
Producer/Director Lance Mungia has directed two theatrical features for Lions Gate and Dimension Films; the cult indie hit “Six String Samurai” and “The Crow: Wicked Prayer”. He has won multiple awards and his films have played at Sundance, Slamdance, Toronto, Seattle and other major international film festivals.
