Bigfoot Studies: The Patterson-Gimlin Film


With Steven Saint Thomas, Journalist

On Oct. 20, 1967, rodeo rider/photographer Roger Patterson filmed the most iconic piece of Bigfoot evidence in history: a massive, ape-like figure walking nonchalantly upright through the woods near Bluff Creek. Was the so-called “Patterson-Gimlin film” early reality TV, or the hoax of the century? Using investigative journalism techniques, participants will survey the analysis of the film over the past 50-plus years, review first-hand sources, and put hoax theories to the test.
