Crafted from a newly discovered trove of 65mm footage and more than 11,000 hours of uncatalogued audio recordings, Apollo 11 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 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. (2019; 93 minutes)

Following the screening, NASA chief historian Bill Barry will moderate a discusion with director Todd Douglas Miller, producer Thomas Petersen, and National Archives motion picture archivist Daniel Rooney .

This program is made possible in part by the National Archives Foundation through the generous support of The Boeing Company.
