Why We Went to the Moon

Why We Went to the Moon

Director: Ned Daly

Said to be culled from NASA archives, and including recently de-classified videos, a fictional US government agency reveals for the first time the true nature of the Apollo space voyages. “Why We Went to the Moon” explores the history of man’s fascination with our near-Earth companion - especially the longing for exotic sexual adventures with the women who must live there. These (mostly) suppressed fantasies achieve unstoppable political potency among American men when the shortage of women during the Eisenhower administration becomes an existential crisis.
One government official (who has asked not to be named) said, “Ha! Very clever...I like it as is.”
