Travel straight to the heart of NASA’s most celebrated mission – the one that first put men on the moon.
Dir Todd Douglas Miller
A Dogwoof release
This stunning documentary, the product of extensive research at NASA and the National archives, saw Miller and his team sift through a newly discovered trove of 70mm footage and more than 11,000 hours of uncatalogued audio recordings as they sought to chart the Apollo 11 mission, 50 years on. Brilliantly capturing the excitement of the electrifying launch, nerve-jangling touchdown and return to earth - while avoiding any use of recreations, cutaway interviews or narration - the filmmakers have let the extraordinary footage speak for itself, and in the process made a brilliantly crafted tribute to that remarkable achievement.
