For more than 20 years the CIA used psychic abilities operationally in a top secret spy program. You paid for it, and now you deserve to know about it.

After an experiment in psychic abilities at Stanford Research Institute accidentally reveals classified intel at a top secret NSA site, the two physicists behind it all are co-opted by the CIA and the amazing work of their psychic spies is silenced by the demands of ‘national security’. When America’s greatest psychic spy dies mysteriously and is accused of treason, it spurs program co-founder Russell Targ to fight to get their work declassified even if it means going directly to his former enemies in the Soviet Union, to Wall Street and beyond to prove the reality of ESP.

The true story of physicist Russell Targ, his cold war psychic spies and his fight to bring this information public, with evidence presented by a Nobel Laureate, an Apollo Astronaut, and many formerly undercover military “remote viewers” and scientists that worked extensively for the U.S. Intelligence community, now able to speak for the first time in our film.

Third Eye Spies is a new documentary feature film by award winning director Lance Mungia. The film consists of compellingly cinematic re-enactments of actual remote viewings done at Stanford Research Institute for intelligence agencies, amazing new data retrieved from recently declassified documents via Freedom of Information Act and over 30 interviews with every top player involved and how those discoveries are being used today.

Whether psi is used to find your house keys, make money on Wall Street or read codewords at a secret NSA site, spy on foreign embassies, find a kidnapped general or a downed bomber, Russell Targ’s understated mantra that “the evidence for extra sensory perception is overwhelming and shows a talent we all share and deserve to know about, leaves us not just with an understanding of this unique and unsung chapter in U.S. history, but perhaps most importantly a greater understanding of who we are.

Film run time: 01:55
