From director Todd Douglas Miller comes a cinematic event fifty years in the making. Crafted from a newly discovered trove of 70mm 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 men on the moon, and forever made Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin into household names. Immersed in the perspectives of the astronauts, the team in Mission Control, and the millions of spectators on the ground, we vividly experience those momentous days and hours in 1969 when humankind took a giant leap into the future.
Insider tip: “This evocation of the mission half a century ago is as good as it’s likely to get — meaning not just good but magnificent” (Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal). G. Allen Johnson, San Francisco Chronicle adds: “An invigorating and inspiring viewing experience. The mission was indeed a giant leap for mankind, and now we have a documentary worthy of its subject.” Chris Nashawaty, Entertainment Weekly: “The NASA mission at the heart of the must-see documentary Apollo 11 reminds you what it feels to be truly awestruck.” Dominick Suzanne-Mayer, Consequence of Sound: “Apollo 11 is a great documentary, and its greatness can largely be attributed to the stunning archival scenes compiled within it. It’s impossible for anybody who wasn’t there to truly understand what it felt like to see Apollo 11 complete its travels, but for at least 93 endlessly arresting minutes, Apollo 11 does its very best to put you right there.” Matt Zoller Seitz, RogerEbert.com: “It’s magnificent and unique, an adrenaline shot of wonder and skill.”
