1969. The moon. A challenge to American ideas of exceptionalism, industry, ambition and the power of dreams.
Soon there will be an American flag on her surface. Not 240,000 miles away, but on a secret sound stage on the west coast of the United States. Giant Leap is a fast talking, foul-mouthed comedy-drama in which a group of writers are tasked with creating the crowning line of their careers: Neil Armstrong’s words as America fakes the 1969 moon landing.
Writers: Mickey Down and Konrad Kay.
Director: Alexander Lass.
