Timed to coincide with the 50th anniversary of NASA’s celebrated Apollo 11 mission, Apollo 11: First Steps is a thrilling cinematic experience showcasing the real-life moments of the first lunar landing.
“That’s one small step for a man, a giant leap for mankind.”
With never-before-seen 70mm footage and a trove of newly discovered audio recordings, the filmmakers reconstruct the exhilarating final moments of preparation, liftoff, landing, and return of this historic mission—one of humanity’s greatest achievements and the first to put men on the moon. Immersed in the perspectives of the astronauts Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins, as well as 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, leaving us marveling at human ingenuity and the impulse that led us into space.
Apollo 11: First steps will be shown exclusively in Omniversum from 21 May.
Language: English, without subtitles. Original sound recording from 1969.
