NEW DATE

In commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the flight of Apollo 8, the first manned spaceflight to leave the Earth’s orbit, we present two short documentary films. Earthrise (2018; 30 minutes) tells the story of the first images of Earth taken from space in 1968. Told solely by the Apollo 8 astronauts, the film recounts their experiences and explores the beauty of Earth against the blackness of space. Debrief: Apollo 8 (1969; 30 minutes) was produced by NASA after the historic mission and is narrated by Burgess Meredith.
