The question of how the flag could flutter on the windless moon surface has sparked intrigue and speculation for years. In a revealing interview with Stanley Kubrick’s widow, an astonishing tale emerged. She alleges that Kubrick, along with other Hollywood producers, was recruited to assist the U.S. in winning the intense moon race.

The U.S. government, keen to garner public support and finance the costly space program, couldn’t afford any PR mishaps. Concerned about the lack of live footage from the moon landing, President Nixon turned to Kubrick, whose groundbreaking film 2001: A Space Odyssey had provided inspiration. Kubrick’s task was to ensure that promotional opportunities were not missed.

In exchange for his assistance, Kubrick received a special NASA lens to aid in shooting Barry Lyndon. Dark Side Of The Moon delves into this intriguing blend of fact, fiction, and speculation surrounding the moon landing. It highlights how the manipulation of images can distort the truth.

Using a mix of archival footage, fabricated documents, and interviews taken out of context, the documentary navigates the viewer through a maze of deception and reality. Interviews with astronauts like Buzz Aldrin are included, adding to the intrigue. Dark Side Of The Moon is not your typical documentary. It aims to both inform and entertain, while also prompting viewers to adopt a critical eye when consuming media.
