The Trip tells the story of Jack Torrance and his experience as the film director who participated in one of the greatest mystifications of the 20th century: the landing on the moon.
Jack Torrance recounts “The Project,” which resulted in the film of the landing on the moon in 1969. Was there really a trip to the moon? Or was it staged in a Hollywood studio?
Jack Torrance, you may recall, is also the name of the protagonist in Kubrick's The Shining. [eb-hj]

Director Tommy Pallotta: “We crafted a multitasking and multi-linear experience and we blended genres like animation, documentary, fiction and interactivity all together in one story. This hybrid approach allows us to look at a serious documentary subject, but also to shift from the usual talking head approach to something that better reflects our time.”
The goal is to attract a different (and younger) audience than traditional documentary viewers.
