OPERATION AVALANCHE – interview with Matt Johnson

by GREG KING Addressing the popular conspiracy theory that the Apollo 11 moon landing in 1969 was faked, Operation Avalanche is a faux documentary about two film makers who document the staging of this seminal event. It has been shot using the found footage aesthetic. In 1967, four undercover CIA agents were sent to NASA posing as a documentary film crew.
