Red Moon

The fable of the werewolf gets a clever and communist remake in Sirocco Research Labs’ “Red Moon,” a quirky twist on a horrible tale.

The short film was produced by the creative collective more than a year ago, and released to the public in full on Friday. Official selection at a handful of film festivals, it’s been making the rounds at the Atlantic Film FestivalHollyshorts Film FestivalSt. Louis International Film Festival and the 2012Oxford Film Festival.

“Red Moon” follows the story of Captain Alexei Ovechkin, a captain of a Russian submarine, a Soviet Union devout and a sufferer of lycanthropy. In a valiant effort to escape the torture of murdering people as a wolf, and to prove his dedication to his communist state, Ovechkin joins the navy and plunges deep into the sea, away from the terror of the full moon. But due to a series of unfortunate events (damn Americans on their tail), the Captain returns to his hunter ways, and in turn, reigns terror on the state he loves so much.

The beautifully shot 15 minute short is full of mangy mustaches kitschy wolf costumes, and equally as kitschy Russian accents. The spillage of blood comes with red puffs of fabric and puffs of fur. We’ve never seen blood shed look so cute.

According to film producer Raul Julia-Levy, extraterrestrials contacted the Mayan civilization in Mexico thousands of years ago — and he claims he’ll prove it in an upcoming film, “Revelations of the Mayans 2012 and Beyond.”

Unproven claims of ancient astronauts in the Americas have been made for decades, most prominently by Erich von Daniken, author of the best-selling classic work of pseudoscience “Chariots of the Gods?: Unsolved Mysteries of the Past” (Putnam, 1968). Von Daniken wrote that ancient Egyptians had neither the intelligence nor the tools to create the massive pyramids at Giza, and thus they were made by aliens.

Some claim the giant drawings in the Nazca desert of Peru were created by spaceships. In fact, the Nazca Lines were created by the Nazca Indians, probably as part of a ceremonial ritual

So the claims in this documentary by Julia-Levy (son of late actor Raul Julia) are nothing new — but the evidence for those claims is said to be.

What is this earth-shaking new evidence? The filmmakers are being coy about what exactly they have (they want you to go see the movie), but a statement issued by Luis Augusto García Rosado, the minister of tourism for the Mexican state of Campeche, issued a statement that contact between the Mayans and extraterrestrials is “supported by translations of certain codices.” (The fact that this stunning revelation was announced by a tourism official — and not, say, a professional archaeologist or anthropologist from the Smithsonian Institution — raises suspicion that it may not be based in solid scientific research.)

García Rosado also referred to “landing pads in the jungle” that date back three millennia. It’s not clear why aliens would need a designated landing pad for their spaceships, since many eye-witness reports of (supposed) extraterrestrial craft suggest that they can land on just about any terrain (though maybe alien landing gear technology has improved over the past 3,000 years).
Julia-Levy and others involved in the film were unavailable for comment.
