Operation Avalanche

by Matt Johnson Feature Film Competition

At the height of the Cold War in 1967, the heads of the CIA fear a Russian spy may jeopardise the first moon landing, NASA’s so-called Apollo Mission. Under the guise of documentary filmmakers, the overzealous newcomer-agents Matt and Owen infiltrate NASA’s headquarters in order to expose the mole. As the two detectives eavesdrop on secret internal calls, they make a shocking discovery – and soon come up with an ingenious plan to avert a national disaster…
Using undercover, guerrilla-style filming techniques at NASA’s headquarters combined with found footage and adding a large pinch of humour, filmmaker Matt Johnson, who plays the role of agent Matt, has created a film on the 1960s Cold War craze that denounces every conspiracy theory surrounding the moon landing. OPERATION AVALANCHE is also passionate homage to the art of filmmaking.
