Immersing you in the story of the Moon landing, Todd Douglas Miller’s gripping documentary is a groundbreaking work of historical preservation.
Hailed as ‘one of the most astounding films about space ever made’ (The Guardian), Apollo 11 uses never-before-seen large-format footage alongside phenomenal sound design to create the definitive document of the Apollo 11 mission. Presented without narration or title cards, the film may not try to tell you anything you don’t already know about the Moon landing—but it will make you feel like you’ve seen it for the very first time.
This is a documentary experience like no other. 50 years in the making, it is a fantastic celebration of human achievement, honouring the efforts of the thousands of people involved. The result is perhaps the purest reminder of what it truly meant to put a human being on the Moon in 1969.
This screening will be introduced by Stephen Slater.
This summer, we’re celebrating the 50th anniversary of the first Moon landing with activities, talks and screenings across the museum, including our brand new family exhibition Hello Universe.
