A film by Joseph Bernard
Dr. Jeffrey Mishlove interviews Dr. Jacques Vallée on the subject of UFOs. Vallée is a computer scientist who contributed greatly to the core architecture of ARPANET (the military prototype of the Internet) and an astronomer who developed the first digital map of Mars for NASA. In the late 1960s he was brought aboard to assist Dr. J. Allen Hynek of Northwestern University on the public USAF investigation of UFOs. Together with Hynek, he concluded that the USAF was responsible for obstructing a proper investigation of the phenomenon. He continued to pursue UFO research independently. He was Steven Spielberg's model for the French scientist in "Close Encounters of the Third Kind."
“People had been talking about the problems of maintaining a strong and vibrant sexuality during the AIDS crisis and the difficulties of relations between HIV-negative and HIV-positive men, but Fear of Disclosure was the first film to deal with those issues. And Phil [Zwickler] did it in his typical fashion—confronting it head on and resolutely exposing his own vulnerabilities. The image may be more David Wojnarowicz, but the spirit of the piece is pure Phil.” —Jim Hubbard
