Summary
Originally, in 2001, director William Karel wanted to make a film on Stanley Kubrick, one year after his death. While talking to his widow, he discovered the extent of the collaboration that existed between Kubrick and the NASA. It turns out that Kubrick and other Hollywood producers contributed largely to the popular success of the US space programme by turning it into a show (design of astronauts' suits, colour fo the Apollo capsule, positioning of the rocket launcher in Cape Canaveral, etc...) Starting with this true story, we came up with our own... What if. . .? What if Nixon - under pressure to put the first man onto the moon before the end of the decade -- had asked for a film of the landing on the moon be produced just in case the Apollo 11 went wrong and no pictures would be available... Navigating carefully between lies and truth, the film mixes fact with pure invention. We will use every possible ingredient: 'hijacked' archive footage, false documents, real interviews which have been taken out of context or transformed through voice-over or dubbing, staged interviews by actors who reply from a script and, of course, interviews with astronauts such as Neil Armstrong who refute our claim or still others who believe for all what it's worth that it was all a hoax
