In the last 24 years I have been documenting my life obsessively.
My journey started in Tel Aviv in 1996, when I was abducted by extra-terrestrials from my bedroom. The event left me in shock. I closed my production company and hit the road, searching for an answer: Roswell, New York, paris and Cuba. I filmed people who were abducted and got implants in their bodies. Suddenly, A Mossad agent shows up, trying to sabotage the production.
Then mom dies, and I find out I was adopted. My father turns out to be a dangerous criminal. My kids and their mom leave for California. I drink and fuck all the time. I hear voices in my head.
My name Is Ariel Semmel and PARANO is my true crazy story.
