I am fascinated by the space program. We have been fortunate enough to visit the Kennedy Space Center on several occasions and I am just in awe of the work that our astronauts do. My son and I also got to hear Captain Scott Kelly speak in the fall and we were just mesmerized!
Leading up to our recent visit to the Space Center, my son and I watched as many movies and documentaries about the space program as we possibly could. Some of our personal favorites are Apollo 13 and Hidden Figures.
Apollo 11 Documentary
I recently learned that there’s a new documentary featuring the story of the Apollo 11 mission from 1969.
Apollo 11 is a 2019 American documentary film edited, produced, and directed by Todd Douglas Miller. It focuses on the 1969 Apollo 11 mission, the first spaceflight to land men on the Moon. The film consists solely of archival footage, including 70 mm film that was previously unreleased to the public, and does not feature narration or interviews.
The film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival on January 24, 2019, and was released theatrically in the United States by Neon on March 1, 2019. It received acclaim from critics and has grossed over $6 million.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apollo_11_(2019_film)
I wasn’t alive for the Apollo 11 mission 50 years ago, but I was born about a year later. I remember hearing so much about man walking on the moon.
Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin were famous names during my childhood. In fact, I took these pictures at the new Heroes & Legends exhibit at Kennedy Space Center:

I am not sure how long this documentary will be available in theaters. And it’s only available in select theaters across the nation. So, be sure to check all your local theaters for possible showtimes and get out and see this one ASAP.
