Doc Club: Apollo 11 (cert U) + Skype Q&A

From director Todd Douglas Miller (Dinosaur 13) comes a cinematic experience fifty years in the making. Crafted from a newly discovered trove of 70mm 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 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 in 1969 when humankind took a giant leap into the future.


The film will be followed by a Skype Q&A with Stephen Slater chaired by James Collie from Violet Pictures.

Stephen Slater has had an interest in documentary film-making since an early age growing up in Derbyshire, England. Beginning his television career in sports production, in 2011 he produced and directed the BBC FOUR documentary "Destination Titan", about the Huygens probe landing on Saturn's largest moon, Titan. Since then, his interest in archival storytelling has seen him specialising as an Archive Producer for a series of high profile feature documentaries, including "The Last Man On The Moon", "George Best: All By Himself", and the BAFTA Award winning "Hillsborough". He is a specialist in the NASA film archive, and in 2011 was nominated for the Arthur C Clarke Award for Achievement in Space Media. He is the archive producer for "APOLLO 11” and will be joining us for a Skype Q&A.
