Storyline

Through a late night conspiracy broadcast, a frantic caller claims human beings from the future are living on the moon, controlling our every action. His call is cut short, but when a box of unusual materials arrives at the radio station several days later, filmmakers Matt and Sonny become involved and pursue the story, following the lead and chasing a set of hidden coordinates deep into Louisiana's Atchafalaya Basin. An enormous and dark underground facility reveals there may be more truth to the caller's story than believed, and quickly entangles the filmmakers in uncovering a history that was meant to be long forgotten. They narrowly escape with one unusual artifact, but soon find themselves in a threatening encounter with the bizarre and reclusive Church of Lunology, an organization very dedicated to keeping their mysterious secrets, and silencing anyone who stands in their way. Now hunted and on the run, they flee their homes only to encounter David James, a man who claims to ... Written by Anonymous

Trivia

All of the scenes with the filmmakers were largely improvised, to keep the dialogue as natural and unrehearsed as possible. The interviews, however, were verbatim from the script, and most of the actors performing them had no idea what the film was about as they only knew the small bit of dialogue their character was given.

Lunopolis cannot be explained...
4 October 2011 | by See all my reviews

Lunopolis must be seen.

There are very few films that re-define a genre, or re-design one at least. But Mathew Avant accomplishes this feat with his instant science fiction documentary classic, Lunopolis.

Lunopolis fuses SCI-Fi with conspiracy, re-launching mockumentary style with an original twist of institutional authenticity.

Put simply: Lunoplois introduces facts that MAY be fictitious, but offers factual proof for those facts... fictitiously.

You have to see it to believe it: Two filmmakers find a strange lair, a cool 60's retro device, and an unlikely Polaroid picture. But what they really find is a well-written, and incredibly well-conceived answer to life, the universe, and everything.

Mark my words. Lunopolis is a delightful mindblow and will be talked about for years to come.
