FILMINCO PRODUCTIONS in association with ERIK HUDSON FILMS presents NASA NOT SOUND.
A feature documentary by Jet Wintzer and Erik Hudson. Coming in April 2015.
Between 1969 and 1972, the NASA Apollo missions allegedly traveled 239,000 miles landing men on the moon six times. But a thriving culture of conspiracy alleging the landings were faked has emerged predominantly attacking the photographic evidence, the general technology involved, and stressing the fact that, since 1972, no human has been more than 400 miles from earth.
Yet the doubters are a fringe minority. Their claims cannot be tested without going back to the moon where light and shadows remain an alien environment compared to Earth. For every attack on the official story, there has always been a seemingly scientific retort. And there's been no verifiable smoking gun. This film goes in search of one.
NASA NOT SOUND is the first film to make a significant analysis of the official audio broadcasts from the Apollo missions by ignoring the visual and other controversial elements to lay its focus squarely upon one thing: SOUND.
On the moon, there is no atmosphere capable of propagating sound waves audible to the human ear. Nothing the astronauts did on the moon should be heard in the official broadcasts other than radio communications from inside their air tight space suits. All mechanical vibrations made by the astronauts outside of their suits should not be audible, yet this film has unearthed a plethora of uncanny sounds.
NASA.gov and the Apollo astronauts have acknowledged some of these sounds while offering no more than a wild speculative guess as to how such sounds were recorded. The astronauts do not recall hearing them on the moon and have said they thought such sound to be impossible. This film holds NASA to the standard of scientific method by interviewing acoustic professionals respected in their specialized fields.
This film also uses clips of modern astronauts who may have unwittingly convicted the Apollo missions in their candid statements to the media that no sound can be heard in the eerily silent vacuum of space even if banging metal objects with hammers.
NASA NOT SOUND will have its world premier in April 2015.
