“Do ghosts exist?
The answer is “yes” if you are quoting documentary filmmaker and paranormal investigator Chad Calek, along with fellow filmmaking- and paranormal investigation-partner, Justin Holstein,
Calek brings his “Sir NoFace” documentary, in which he claims the existence of ghosts, to the Ridgefield Playhouse on Saturday, Aug. 19. The documentary film screening & Q&A session with the pair is being presented as part of the Hearst Media Entertaining Conversation Series at the Playhouse.
According to the Calek, the documentary “chronicles the Australian Government sanctioned paranormal investigation that led to the filming of a full-body apparition (now dubbed Sir NoFace), which for the first time in history, definitively proves the existence of ghosts.” Here is a link to the trailer: https://vimeo.com/217725354
The Sir NoFace Tour kicked off Aug. 2 in Austin, Texas, and will run through Sept. 20, visiting 28 venues. The tour also includes a “best of” evidence presentation, featuring 25 years of Calek and Holstein’s “most compelling evidence.”
According to the playhouse: “Known for his unique visual story-telling style and his poetic narration, Calek is best perhaps known as the on-screen focus, director and producer of his autobiographical ‘American Ghost Hunter’ documentary, which chronicled the Calek family’s 20-year battle with the paranormal, including Calek’s attempt to determine if his own mother’s alleged “possession” issues were authentic or merely a case of mistaken mental illness.
“Although known for capturing some of the most compelling evidence in the history of the paranormal field, Calek has also developed a reputation as a staunch ‘debunker,’ who has discovered rational explanations to many of the world’s most famous paranormal legends,” the playhouse said, adding that 2017 will also see the release of Calek’s “A Blook Red Sky” documentary, as well as the Verizon GO90 platform release of the “Ghosted” series, produced by Eli Roth’s Crypt TV and Hearst Digital Media, for which Calek serves as executive producer and on-screen co-star.
