HOUSTON, WE HAVE A PROBLEM

How did the US achieve the moonlanding in the timeframe it had? What was going on in the largest underground facility in the Balkans? Žiga Virc' mockumentary sets out to answer these questions and what is more, it embarks on a journey around the world, interviewing high-ranking officials, uncovering hidden documents and reuniting lost family members. With masterful use of never before seen archive footage, Žiga Virc blends reality and fiction to the point of unrecognizability. Fourth wall-breaking philosopher Slavoj Žižek constantly reminds us of questioning everything, encouraging further contemplation as the film touches upon »Yugo-Nostalgia«, conspiracy theories and deeper philosophical questions.
