About the Film
Featuring never-before-seen film footage of humanity’s greatest scientific accomplishments, Apollo 11 is a not to be missed word-of-mouth hit from this year’s Sundance Film Festival, a cinematic event on the fiftieth anniversary year of this mythic accomplishment. “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.
