While this civilization was able to shield itself from all Earth-based visual detection devices, President Kennedy's speech from 1961 that declared the intent to "Put a man on the Moon and return him safely to the Earth" was not designed as a space race with the Soviet Union, but to secretly establish contact with this newly discovered civilization. This discovery was classified and false images from the Moon were transmitted during all the Apollo missions. When the Earth mission of this new civilization was discovered, political forces demanded that President Nixon end manned missions to the Moon in 1972. First World commences in the year 2018 when the Chinese government announces it is making its first manned mission to the Moon within 24 hours. What does this civilization represent?

Very Interesting and Nicely Made.
6 March 2008 | by akharestanSee all my reviews

First World is an interesting short film filled with mystery and intrigue. I have been to three screenings of this short and they all have been filled with inquisitive sci-fi fans loving every minute of this movie. At the end the crowd enjoys getting involved in a discussion about the events in the movie with Mark Lund, the creator /writer/ producer of this project. First World has a great plot, superb acting especially by Lindy Nettleton and Angelina Spicer, an exciting film score and killer special effects considering the movies budget. Over all I enjoyed watching First World at the various screenings I have been to and am looking forward to the long version of this exciting short film.
