1970's (?) sci fi movie- UFO's in desert follow teenager walking trail

I can only remember a very small part of the movie. It was part of a low budget film marathon on television years ago and it seemed to be from the 70's based on the characters' appearances and the color of the film. I remember a teenage boy is talking about his attitude to life in general with an older character who says "So you are just a typical teenager" to which he replies "Damn right". I think a narrator explains that the teenage character has had contact with ufo's and/or aliens all his life and lately the contacts have become more frequent. The next scene showed him walking a desert path and silver UFO's were following him.

Full movie is on Youtube here:
Yes that's it!! The dialogue I remembered is at 25m. What a great obscure film that was. I can't believe anyone would know it. Thank you so much- I was thinking about that film it seems all my life. Now I know what it was.
