Witness the last time we were One
Travel back in time to 1969 and join Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins as they fulfil one of humanity’s greatest achievements.
Relive the moment mankind touched down on the moon through never released before 70mm archival footage. No modern recreation, narration or interviews, just a true representation of the mission, with every sound and every picture hailing from NASA transmissions and footage.
With unrestricted access to NASA archives, director Todd Douglas Miller presented the documentary in such a way that one feels as if they really were there. Every little detail is included, from the pre-launch preparation of the rollout of the Saturn V rocket, to the conversations between astronauts and Mission Control, Houston. Faithful and detailed, even the soundtrack only includes instruments from around 1969.
Apollo 11 is a truly inspiring documentary paying tribute to the 400,000 men and women of NASA, and our three legendary astronauts. Soar with the crowd as the Apollo 11 mission unfolds from the launch. Listen to the wonderful 1969 TV commentary of Walter Cronkite. Watch history in the making.
