This vibrant restoration of never-before-seen footage results in one of the most astounding films about space ever made. Fifty years in the making (the Apollo 11 moon landing took place on July 20th, 1969), 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. (2019; 93 min) co-feature, HIGH LIFE, opens Aug 2nd
