Apollo 11

Thursday, January 9, 2020

The story of man’s first trip to the moon in 1969 has been told in many versions, but this stunning new documentary, drawing upon never-before-seen NASA footage, brings a level of drama and suspense that makes it feel brand new. Director Todd Douglas Miller uncovered a trove of 65mm footage from the NASA archives that had largely been forgotten. The film team’s painstaking work to synch visuals to rare audio delivers a mind-blowing experience.

Screening in the series Oscars Spotlight: Documentaries 2020.
