Lunarcy! is a 2012 Canadian documentary film directed by Simon Ennis, and produced by Jonas Bell Pasht, Ron Mann and Jonah Bekhor. The film premiered at the 2012 Toronto Film Festival on September 8, and was distributed worldwide through German Screen. The film draws from a cast of real people who each have a unique connection to the moon, including an astronaut who once walked on the moon and a person who claims personal ownership of the moon.

Lunarcy! movie scenes

One of the characters in this documentary is Professor Jaymie Matthews, an astrophysics professor at the University of British Columbia. At age 13 he lied about his age to be selected as the Youth Ambassador from Canada for the 1972 launch of Apollo 17. After the launch, the United States sent 13-year-old Matthews Canada's $5 million Apollo 17 Goodwill Moon Rock, which he kept under his bed for months. Upon recovering the rock from Matthews, Canada lost track of it for decades, incorrectly believing it to have been stolen.
