Film Summary: From director Todd Douglas Miller comes a cinematic event fifty years in the making. Crafted from a newly discovered 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 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.
What the critics are saying:
One of the unexpected but welcome things “Apollo 11” accomplishes is restoring a sense of how insanely complex the lunar mission was, and how audacious. How did people even have the nerve to dream a dream this big, not to mention the determination and skill to pull it off without a hitch? That truly seems like a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away.
– Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
This doesn’t just feel like a movie. It gives you the sensation that you’ve been transported right into the middle of history.
– Rolling Stone
Apollo 11 will bring you to tears — it’s a reminder of national functionality, of making the big dream happen without ego or divisiveness.
– Time Out
Much of the footage in Apollo 11 is, by virtue of both access and proper preservation, utterly breathtaking.
– Hollywood Reporter
Apollo 11 might not tell you anything you don’t already know about the moon landing. But it will make you feel it, and see it, anew.
