(Sundance Friday) APOLLO 11

Director: Todd Douglas Miller
Cast: ---
NASA's vaults open for the first time to spill this exquisite, never-before seen audio and 70mm film footage of the Apollo 11 mission. The meandering cameras in Cape Canaveral capture a dreamy-eyed portrait of America as it stepped into the future, and from inside the Apollo 11 spacecraft, the amazingly jocular conversation of the astronauts punctuates each stage of the mission with lightness and charm. Yet the crowds watching the rockets are oblivious to the enormous pressure mission control is under to succeed.
