NASA’s vaults open for the first time to reveal exquisite audio and vivid film footage of its most celebrated mission: the one that first put men on the moon. The meandering cameras in Cape Canaveral capture a dreamy-eyed portrait of America as it steps into the future. From inside the Apollo 11 spacecraft, the amazingly jocular conversation of the astronauts punctuates each stage of the mission with lightness and charm. The crowds watching the rocket, however, are oblivious to the enormous pressure mission control is under to succeed.
Director Todd Miller takes you straight to the heart of this intense scientific and human endeavour, sharing the atmosphere and action from every stage of the mission. The footage is so clean and vibrant, it’s as if you’re there standing at the base of the rocket. Painstakingly crafted and realised, this jaw-dropping immersive experience offers a new look into one of humanity’s greatest achievements.
