“Some of the recently found film is not as crisp as contemporary digital imagery, but it has an immediacy that today’s CGI-dependent tales of cosmic fantasy never achieve. ” Mark Jenkins, Washington Post

A look at the Apollo 11 mission to land on the moon led by commander Neil Armstrong and pilot Buzz Aldrin. With recently discovered 65mm film footage.”It’s all here – from the colossal rocket rolling to the launch pad at Florida’s Cape Canaveral, to the rows of white-shirted men with black ties watching monitors. And from Armstrong’s immortal words, to the tense return to land. The director, in partnership with NASA and America’s National Archives, sifted through roughly 11,000 hours of uncatalogued materials. By using long-forgotten, often large format, footage, and commentary from the era, the film puts us right into the action, and conveys a thrilling picture of how it was experienced at the time by astronauts, technicians, onlookers and the media.” (Sydney Film Festival)
