Houston, We have a problem!

Directed by Žiga Virc
Slovenia, Croatia, Germany | 88 min. | English, Servic, Slovenian (English subtitled)

Houston, We have a Problem! examines one of the lesser-known myths about the first moon landing: the fact that America only succeeded by purchasing a Yugoslav space program. Too peculiar to be true? Director Virc brings us a strong and surprising study showing us that anything is possible. Or isn't it?

The moon landing has been subject to popular conspiracy theories for a long time, including the lesser-known story about the US buying Tito's space program during the early 60's and president Kennedy's reign. This billion deal indirectly led to the dissolution of the former Yugoslavia several years later. Houston, We have a Problem! reports on a fascinating research based on unknown archival material, live images and in-depth interviews, trying to unmask the secret deal between JFK and Tito.
 
First-time filmmaker Žiga Virc like no other knows how to combine fact and fiction in this delicious mockumentary about one of the most fascinating mysteries surrounding the historic moment of the moon landing. In his strong research Virc drags you into a lot of fascinating plot twists and astonishing arguments. But the big question at the end remains: do we have answers and clearer insight after watching the film or did it raise even more questions?
