Did you know that the U.S. government and NASA conspired to fake the moon landing? No? You didn't that the whole thing was an elaborate hoax done the same way we make movies today? Then you aren't hanging out in the right conspiracy theorist websites, my friend. But clearly writer/director Matt Johnson is, because that's the subject of his new film, Operation Avalanche.
Johnson also stars in the film which centers on two CIA agents who infiltrate NASA to uncover a Russian mole, only to learn that the Apollo 11 mission was unsuccessful and the moon landing staged. Here's the synopsis:
In 1967, during the height of the Cold War, two young CIA agents (Matt Johnson and Owen Williams) go undercover at NASA to investigate a possible Russian mole. In disguise as documentary filmmakers, they tap phones and break into offices while purporting to learn more about the Apollo project. But when they end up uncovering a shocking NASA secret – and a major government cover-up – they decide to embark on a new mission that may put their own lives at risk.
Operation Avalanche opens September 16th....or does it?
