Apollo 11

USA 2019. Dir: Todd Douglas Miller. 93 min. DCP

A treasure trove of pristine, previously unseen 70mm footage, discovered in NASA’s vaults, is put to superb use in this immersive, wondrous, and surprisingly suspenseful record of the historic Apollo 11 mission to the Moon. Documentarian Todd Douglas Miller assembles the film in direct-cinema fashion, using neither voice-over narration nor talking-head interviews. With the exception of composer Matt Morton’s evocative synth score, made with an era-appropriate Moog, Apollo 11 relies entirely on archival footage and sound (including 11,000 hours of previously uncatalogued Mission Control audio recordings) to create a captivating, even visceral account of the still-mind-boggling immensity of the achievement. “Entirely awe-inspiring” (Glenn Kenny, New York Times). “One of the most astounding films about space ever made” (Adrian Horton, The Guardian).
