Yes, that voice you hear narrating the new trailer for The Dundee Project, a 19-minute documentary about an annual gathering of UFO enthusiasts in Wisconsin's Kettle Moraine State Forest is indeed favorite Cheese State son Justin Vernon of Bon Iver. Vernon lent his voice to the film about the annual UFO Daze gathering, chronicled by Milwaukee filmmaker Mark Borchardt, best known for his 1997 black-and-white horror film Coven, itself the subject of the 1999 doc American Movie.
Dundee, which screened in January at the Slamdance Film Festival in Park City, Utah, will play again on March 30 at the Wisconsin Film Festival. "It was the location of the celebratory gathering that conjured my excitement. For it just so happened to be taking place in my home state of Wisconsin, specifically a place called Dundee. I consulted the charts and realized that it was practically in my own backyard," Borchardt says in the documentary, according to a Wisconsin Public Radio report.
"Mark Borchardt's 'The Dundee Project,' an otherworldly documentary... coming soon," Vernon intones solemnly over vintage keyboards in the trailer.
