From director Todd Douglas Miller comes a cinematic event some fifty years in the making. Crafted from a never-before-seen trove of 65mm footage, and more than 11,000 hours of uncatalogued audio recordings, Apollo 11 takes us straight to the heart of NASA’s most celebrated mission—the one that first put humans on the moon and made Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin into household names. Thrillingly immersed in the perspectives of the astronauts, the team in Mission Control, and the millions of spectators on the ground, you’re invited to revisit those momentous hours when humankind took a giant leap into the future.
Why You Should See This Film
Following the epic story from lift-off to touchdown, Apollo 11 somehow manages to recreate the same sense of awe that would have struck onlookers way back in July 1969. From its pin-sharp, strikingly vibrant image quality to its footage of Armstrong’s immortal words, this glorious film is a one-of-a-kind collaboration between filmmakers, NASA and America's National Archives.
