A new documentary by filmmaker James Fox will explore the circumstances surrounding the incident.
Following on from his previous documentary 'The Phenomenon', Fox has now turned his attentions to a little-known incident that occurred in 1996 when residents of Varginha, Brazil reported sightings of a UFO crash followed by encounters with mysterious alien-like creatures.

It will be narrated by Peter Coyote, who starred in Steven Speilberg's 'E.T. The Extra-terrestrial'.

"Moment of Contact is about an exploration of extraterrestrial encounters, this one centered on a series of events in 1996 when citizens of Varginha, Brazil, reported seeing one or more strange creatures and a UFO crash," the synopsis for the official trailer reads.
"A number of locals, including a group of girls ranging in age from 14-21, had a close encounter with a being described as about 4 feet tall, with brown oily skin, a large head and huge red eyes. "

"The town of Varginha was cordoned off by military and emergency response teams and two creatures were captured. Local military policeman Marco Cherese died under mysterious circumstances after allegedly handling one of the creatures. "

The documentary will be available to watch digitally from October 18th.

I don't think this is quite right. 'Varginha UFO' case is one of the more well known UFO incidents. I remember reading about it 15 or more years ago.

I don't know why you would make such a claim.  The Wiki page   for this incident clearly states "...and garnered media coverage worldwide including an article in The Wall Street Journal. It is one of the best-known cases in Brazilian ufology."

Because of what is written in the opening article: "Fox has now turned his attentions to a little-known incident that occurred in 1996". I just thought that the Varginha UFO incident is not some "little-known UFO incident" that Fox now turning attention to, but one of the most famous UFO incidents ever.

I was being sarcastic.  The Wiki page   for this incident clearly states "...and garnered media coverage worldwide including an article in The Wall Street Journal. It is one of the best-known cases in Brazilian ufology."
