From director Todd Douglas Miller (Dinosaur 13) comes a cinematic experience 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.
The Guardian ★★★★★ "One of the most astounding films about space ever made"
Total Film ★★★★★ "An utterly immersive epic"
Time Out ★★★★★ "The most perfect movie that will ever be made about its subject"
Little White Lies ★★★★ "A riveting and awe-inspiring tribute to one of mankind’s great achievements.
