According to the Wikipedia article, "a US-Canadian conspiracy film with found footage where CIA agents infiltrate NASA and get caught up in an attempt to fake landing Apollo 11 on the Moon in 1969". What the article fails to mention is the 60s feel, so like Kennedy, so film buff, so like Kubrick, or Dr. Strangelove or how I learned to stop worrying and love the bomb, and Breathless (1960), infused throughout this crafty yet naive mockumentary premiering at Sundance, that uses real archives from Cape Canaveral. Of course, the authors, a sublime pair of splendidly borderline renegades, got said material by lying about what they were going to use it for.
