Congratulations to California filmmaker Dan Drasin, who’s produced (imho) the best technical documentary to date on spirit communication and the afterlife.
The title: Calling Earth.
Dan explores the phenomenal history of technical spirit communication (from the work of Friedrich Juergenson and Konstantin Raudive) to the awe-insipring results of contemporary researchers including Marcello Bacci (Italy), Ernst Senkowski (Germany), and Maggy Fischbach in Luxembourg.
Maggy isn’t shown in the film, even though I’m convinced that her results are unequivocally the best in the world. Having worked closely with her for a number of years, I’m sure that the miraculous contact field that opened up for Maggy (and which was used by our spirit friends to place phone calls to me and to various other researchers on both sides of the Atlantic) was made possible largely by the fact that she’s a very private, highly sensitive woman. She’s learned over the years that opening oneself up to the noble-savage soup of human emotions, especially the contempt of crusading skeptics, fouls-up the contact field and weakens the resulting communications from beyond. So… in case you’re wondering why “the Luxembourg group” doesn’t show up, even in good films like this one… that’s why.
The film also looks closely, here in the States, at the Butlers, Sarah Estep, and the EVP moms collaborating as “The Big Circle,” a name coined by their departed children.
This is a great film!… and it lasts about an hour.
Happy viewing!… and, again, thanks Dan!
