The Apollo Scandal
The Apollo Scandal traces the extraordinary story of how a sculpture was smuggled by the astronauts on Apollo 15 in 1971 and placed on the moon, along with a plaque listing the names of all the previous fallen cosmonauts and astronauts who had died trying to get to the moon. The story was covered up by NASA over the years. The documentary casts a new light on the Apollo programme and many of those involved, while revealing the secret history of Man’s first – and so far only – artistic foray to another world. It will provide first-hand accounts from all of the main protagonists, including spectacular archival footage and some hitherto unseen film from the late sixties and early seventies.
