Operation Avalanche

In 1967, CIA agents were sent into NASA posing as a documentary film crew in order to root out a Russian mole. What happened next represents one of the biggest conspiracies in American history. Or does it? In the second feature from the brilliantly witty Canadian filmmaker Matt Johnson (The Dirties), the Cold War paranoia of the 1960s and the fanaticism of the space race is exploded in a tensely crafted piece of documentary fiction, all leading to the ultimate truth behind the 1968 Apollo mission.
