Kubrick's Odyssey I (2011)

Available worldwide

Filmmaker and researcher Jay Weidner reveals the secret knowledge embedded in the work of the greatest filmmaker of all time, Stanley Kubrick. It may be that 2001: A Space Odyssey was not only a retelling of Arthur C. Clarke and Stanley Kubrick's novel, but also a research and development project that assisted Kubrick in the creation of the Apollo moon footage. Weidner presents compelling evidence of how Stanley Kubrick directed the Apollo moon landings.

In light of this revelation, Weidner also explores Kubrick's film, The Shining and shows that this film is, in actuality, the story of Kubrick's personal travails as he secretly worked on the Apollo footage for NASA. This famed movie director placed symbols and hidden anecdotes into his films that tell a far different story than the films appeared to be saying.

This documentary is convincing that Kubrick did film the fake moon landings and proceeded to confess in the remaining movies of his career. However, scenes used from "The Shining" not only are terrible video quality, the audio is so far out of sync from the video that it's distracting. Some scenes it is difficult to tell who is actually talking because one person's lips are moving but it's actually the other person talking. I like Weidner and his ideas but I am disappointed this hasn't been edited to improve what was otherwise an intriguing program.

I don't know how many times I have watched this film and its companion documentary but it continues to captivate and fascinate. A work of genius, befitting its genius subject. Hats off to Jay Weidner.

well certainly they went there but ofcourse the films were faked, they can't realy risk the bases on the moon being accidentaly seen on live tv, Then the moon landings just stop!!! The Russians and everyone just stop??? hmmmmmm they were told to bog off is what happened there, I mean why spend more money sending people on stupid primitive missions just to fool the public?? when we already had anti gravity tech and we already have bases through out the solar system.
if you showed a ten year old thoughs films they would imeadiatly get bored and shout fake, still one day they will have historical significance as proof of the blondering elite and there desperate attempts to nearly fool us all

But with an unlimited government budget, why wouldn't Kubrick request and hire 3M to produce a long single widescreen sheet for the set, as opposed to stitching together small pieces?

What a terrific analysis of the whole topic. I am also gratified to hear a respectful treatment of Richard C. Hoagland's work though your conclusions differ as do mine. After reading his book and trying very hard to see the structures he claimed were in the background on many of them, I had also speculated that it was equally plausible that what he was seeing were irregularities in some sort of drop-cloth or sheeting used to hide the structural components inside some large hangar or sound stage. Your explanation is much better and yet is not a repudiation of other, I think, viable deductions made by Hoagland. Really loved the musical soundtrack - is that available separately?

I feel quite numb that so many lies have been told. I was 8 or so when this happened and watched it live as a kid. I wondered about it, but felt it must be true. Over the years basic engineering principles helped me to question the narrative.

After reading "The Shinning", I felt that he had done King a real disservice by changing his will crafted story. Learning Kubrick's real motive for changing the story, I feel he is a genius.

I've seen this video many times - not because it's DEEP... Just "because"... Maybe it holds messages I'm too thick to receive in only one sitting. I'm also bothered by Jay's inattention to detailing his own production, such as the voice track editing. It's something that is irritating and I keep waiting for a NEW IMPROVED edition. Unfortunately, like GAIAM's "New Improved" viewer, it's not here yet.... I too wonder why Richard Hoaglund doesn't see the "sky for the screen" as it were ... he alludes to all the details of the Scotch-Light background and then... duh.. does he REALLY believe that these blue "curtains" are STRUCTURES on the moon - miles high...??? Maybe been smokin' too much "Upsidasium" ... Well, this doc is now 4 years old... C'mon, Jay there's gotta be more information... did the Nazi's( woops!) I mean the NASA's get to you too??? dum de dum dee dum.... under the masonic moon.......dum dee dummmm.....

Every time the video freezes for an exceptionally long time, strangely on jack nicholsons' in the shining's crazy face, it parallels how I myself am likewise descending into insanity and anger. I'm TRYING to watch teh FILM, Wendy. Every time the video freezes, I lose my concenTRAtion.

At any rate, although the filmmaker makes some good points about the apollo landing and analysis of the still photos adn their similarity to 2001 and front projection technique, some of the shining free-associations are a much less strong point of evidence--that part reads a lot into assumed Kubrickian psychology. Overall, the film has given me pause, and has had me consider the 3rd option--that we went to the moon but what we saw on television was a fake.

Nice that someone caught this hidden story. A compelling piece of evidence from where I'm sitting. I think we'll get to see the lid blown off a lot of other stuff too as the snowball gathers mass.

Apparently the technology for prolonged slow motion footage just did not exist back then. Watch this little clip to see what it is I mean explained more thoroughly: http://youtu.be/sGXTF6bs1IU I am not saying the Government isn't all about hiding important info and lying to the public..for a very long time I thought the moon landing was a fake too..however this man explains things quite well...the length of footage originally shown to the public was just too long to utilize slow motion technology back then, as the amount of footage would have made it far too challenging to produce well (you would have seen numerous jerky lines or evidence of splicing going on).

Good film, just not convinced. I will remain a skeptic about all propaganda from the Government however. Thank you!

As the subject line says - very convincing. I found the "The Shining" part especially fascinating. 5 star rating.

If this won't convince you that the Moonlanding was faked, nothing will.

Refreshing.....Although I had at times trouble following your thinking, I was totally fascinated. Art always has a deeper meaning now doesn't it..?
More of this sort of thing is just what we need.

Well done brother.
Many people like yourself are waking up and discovering the many truth's throughout our world that have been waiting patiently to be rediscovered. I believe many more will very soon follow suit. In fact I KNOW!

Thank you for being

Richard Hoagland actually believes in the authenticity of the Lunar landings. He believes that intelligently made structures were found on the moon at that time and that NASA are covering this up.

Keep them coming, fantastic stuff.

llhumme, posted on July 31, 2013

Very intriguing information. One's initial reaction is shock and disbelief yet given the mind of Kubrick and the lies and deception of the ruling elite, this is, well...intriguing. I enjoyed watching it.

Marla, posted on June 23, 2013

ok. this is ridiculous and an unintelligible conspiracy propaganda film.

bren2112, posted on June 19, 2013

Alphabetical storytelling. revealing this was :D

fredoverdorp, posted on June 18, 2013

Did you asked Hoagland for a reaction??

gengelhorn70, posted on June 16, 2013

Makes you wonder what else the elites would do to get what they want - probably anything...

So this is where Andy Kaufman got that idea. Must catch up on Stanley Kubrick films!

Fascinating. But, Gaia, the audio, and video were out of sync by 2 or 3 seconds.
