The Apollo 11 mission remains one of humanity’s greatest achievements.
It was a moment seen by millions: Man’s first steps on the moon.
And yet, there is much we never heard, never saw, and never knew, until now.
Fifty years after the historic launch, a new documentary tells the mission’s story with new accuracy.
It’s pieced together with archival film and recordings unearthed by the filmmakers.
Among the discovery were thousands of hours of footage that only existed on old reels, much of it uncatalogued, lacking labels or transcriptions.
Working with a team, the filmmakers sifted through, restored, and digitized troves of material.
Without narration, re-creation, or commentary, the film uses only original footage to condense the 9-day mission into 90-minutes.
It begins with launch preparations and ends with the astronauts’ return to earth, layering new perspectives of all those involved in the undertaking.
