Operation Avalanche

“If you believe, they put a man on the moon… “

In 1967, during the height of the Cold War, two young CIA agents (including writer-director Matt Johnson and Owen Williams) go undercover at NASA to investigate a possible Russian mole. In disguise as documentary filmmakers, they tap phones and break into offices while purporting to learn more about the Apollo project. But when they end up uncovering a shocking NASA secret – and a major government cover-up – they decide to embark on a new mission that may put their own lives at risk. *Writer, director and star of OPERATION AVALANCHE Matt Johnson (THE DIRTIES) will be joining us via Skype for a post-screening Q&A on Sunday, November 27.

“That’s one small step for Apollo 11 hoaxers, one giant leap for [writer director] Matt Johnson.” (The Toronto Star)

“Part mockumentary, party black comedy, part action-adventure and part cinematic dare, the movie is a bizarre, engrossing creation that will leave audiences either delighted or baffled, though never bored.” (Globe and Mail)

Operation Avalanche is both a hilarious mockumentary and a tense thriller that dares to imagine what crazy people have been saying for 40 years; that Apollo astronauts never actually walked on the moon.” (National Post)

Johnson and company have fabricated an elaborate, period-styled backstory on how a collection of Ivy League film geeks were recruited by the CIA to convince the world that America got there first.” (Variety)

Operation Avalanche weaves well-known conspiracy theories into a goofily entertaining satire of youthful ambition co-opted as a tool of government intrigue.” (The New York Times)
