This documentary by Theo Kamecke from 1970 gives an indepth and profound look at the Apollo 11 mission to the moon. NASA footage is interspersed with reactions to the mission around the world as the film captures the intensity as well of the philosophical significance of the event.

Bad music, tendentious narration, false drama that hides the real dramas, not a good effort. NASA was awful at self-promotion. The worst part of this film is how uncool it is - how wrong it gets the cultural times - like those very unhip adults who tried to sport the latest youth fashions in the 1970s. Maybe you should watch this film while sitting in a Naugahyde chair in a room with orange shag carpeting, sipping a glass of iced Dubonnais.
Thankfully, a few modern films do a far better job, including the wonderful "Chasing the Moon" and "Apollo 11", just released this year.
