Apollo 11

Director:  Todd Douglas Miller

Premiered at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival

Apollo 11  is a cinematic event 50 years in the making. Crafted from a newly-discovered trove of 65mm footage and more than 11,000 hours of uncatalogued audio recordings, the film takes us straight to the heart of NASA’s most celebrated mission—putting the first men on the moon and forever turning 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. For the premiere, the Sundance festival program stated: “The footage is so clean and vibrant, it is as if you are standing at the base of the rocket.

Exquisitely crafted and realized, this truly immersive experience offers a new look into one of humanity’s greatest achievements, leaving us to marvel at human ingenuity and the impulse that led humanity to space.”
