UK PREMIERE AT SUNDANCE LONDON

A FILM BY TODD DOUGLAS MILLER

On 28th June, the once-in-a-lifetime cinematic event of the year APOLLO 11 releases across the UK. With never-before-seen, newly digitised footage designed to be viewed on the big screen and a propulsive electronic soundtrack, director Todd Douglas Miller (Emmy award-winning, Dinosaur 13) takes audiences to the moon and back in a jaw-dropping and thrilling documentation about the historic 1969 Apollo 11 mission.

Following its triumph at Sundance Film Festival where the film won the Documentary Special Jury Award for Editing, APOLLO 11 will receive its UK Premiere at Sundance London. The film is crafted from a newly discovered trove of 70mm footage, and more than 11,000 hours of uncatalogued audio recordings. It 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.

 

 

Hailed as a new benchmark in documentary filmmaking, APOLLO 11 will be released in cinemas across the UK from 28th June.
