Duration: 93 min
From director Todd Douglas Miller (Dinosaur 13) comes a cinematic event 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.
True Stories: – A season of films exploring true stories: from individuals challenging society’s dominant cultural and political stories, no matter the risk to their own liberty; looking in from the outside at those seeking to sow stories of fear; artists telling stories on film, canvas and landscapes; and stories of death-defying courage in acts from the pioneering to the everyday. Playing across all Picturehouse cinemas from June to September.
