The films of Dorothy Izatt "are giving us a Rosetta Stone of the paranormal," said writer and researcher Peter Guttilla (email), who made a riveting appearance on Monday night's show. Guttilla, who has spent nearly 40 years investigating the unexplained, has been studying the Izatt case for the last 8 years, which he has documented in the book Contact with Beings of Light: The Amazing True Story of Dorothy Wilkinson-Izatt.
"Dorothy Izatt is the only contactee that I can endorse," said Guttilla, who bases this judgment on the fact that she has "proof," 600 reels of 8mm film that she has shot since 1974. He said these films show an array of ET's, crafts and light beings (a number of stills can be viewed here), and because they are on emulsion they would be nearly impossible to fake. Izatt, now 81, a great-grandmother living near Vancouver, has remained an obscure figure, but Guttilla hopes to bring more attention to her unique case, and believes scientific testing of her process would validate her filmic evidence.
Guttilla suggested the light beings that Izatt has been in contact with are "angelic" in nature. And among the myriad types of aliens she has encountered were "sly-eyed elfin ones," and humanoids over 9ft. tall, all of whom are benevolent. The abduction syndrome he related to a "lower order of life form," that Izatt doesn't apparently communicate with. She did however tell Guttilla that creatures such as "dog-faced men" have been able to enter our world because of environmental tampering to the Earth, which "created a breach between our world and the one next to it." For those who wish to view Dorothy Izatt's films, a tentative screening is planned at the HR Macmillan Space Centre in Vancouver on September 6th, 2003.
