CIA admits on fake NASA footage
8 November 2005 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

The documentary is not about the discussion if the moon landing of Neil Armstrong and Buzz is fake. The've been there all right. However there is no actual evidence because of defect equipment. To avoid this setback in 'the race for space' the CIA have used Stanley Kubrick's studios in London to make a few moments of footage which was later on showed to the world as if they where original.

This movie shows the world how emergency footage was already shot before the landing and used to impress the world. The information given by such people as Rumsfeld is to me unbelievable..

Watch this for start to end, and don't judge based on a few minutes as sarastro... Du taget fejl min Ven, den her film er bare ved!
