A fake documentary about faking the moon landing.

WHY WE PICKED IT: This inventive thriller uses found footage (and multiple references to Stanley Kubrick) to cleverly reinvent a common conspiracy theory.

Exclusive streaming premiere. At the height of the Cold War in the 1960s, CIA agents Matt and Owen (played by director/co-writer Matt Johnson and Owen Williams) are sent undercover to NASA posing as a documentary film crew to investigate a potential Russian mole. Once there, however, they discover instead that NASA won’t be able to land on the moon as they’d publicly promised, and subsequently become involved in a government plot to fake the entire thing.
