Documentary: For All Mankind (1989) Directed by Al Reinert
The Apollo program may be best known for the Apollo 11 moon landing, but there is much more to the story of NASA’s mission to put man on the moon. The nineteen Apollo missions spanning from 1966 to 1972 were feats of scientific magnitude that also served as an introduction to the world beyond the planet Earth. The celestial views utilize footage from the original Apollo missions and include a sunrise from space, close-up pictures of the moon, and a view of the earth as a whole circle. Astronauts provide commentary along with mission control agents. The film takes the viewer on a full-fledged voyage to the moon, from the donning of space suits to the return to earth.
