'Apollo 11' Documentary Premieres At Sundance Film Festival
Sundance Film Festival kicked off yesterday with a premiere of the highly-awaited ‘Apollo 11’ documentary that brings to the fore never before seen footage of the most incredible scientific achievement by humankind.
The film captures the Apollo 11 flight from beginning to end, through raw footage drawn from the NASA archives. Audiences bear witness to the nerve-wracking hours before the launch, the magnificent power of the liftoff, the flight into space, the orbiting of the moon, the landing of the lunar module, Armstrong on the moon, Buzz Aldrin on the moon, the relaunch from the moon’s surface, the return flight, the re-entry into the atmosphere, and lastly the splashdown.
The documentary itself has no narration, allowing viewers to simply bask in the combined glory of science and space.
The documentary itself also sheds light on the accuracy and emotional depth of Damien Chazelle’s ‘First Man’, which was among our highest rated films of the year (9.0/10), further underscoring our frustration with the lack of critical acclaim and subsequent award nominations.
