Eight days, three hours, 18 minutes, 35 seconds. That's the total duration of the most important and celebrated space mission ever flown - Apollo 11 - when we first stepped foot on the moon. Eight days that created some of the most iconic images in human history and changed the way we think about our place in the universe forever. But what was it really like for those three men in that high-tech tin can through each of those extraordinary eight days? 8 Days, a feature-length drama documentary to mark the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11, will bring the real story of the mission as it happened.

At about 1 hour in the documentary Armstrong and Aldrin are taking photographs on the moon. The typical sound of a camera's shutter and film transport is heard. This is impossible in a vacuum. See more »
This unusual documentary essentially recreates visuals to match actual audio recordings of the astronauts on their moon excursion. It's an engrossing story and it's fun to see how it played out from beginning to end (fun enough that's it's worth watching both this and Apollo 11, which covers the same territory).
The only thing I didn't care for was the gimmicky transitions. Sometimes when flicking through scenes one hears the sound of a TV getting staticky, other times film footage will run out to the marked-up end. I don't see the point in any of that; it just annoyed me. But that's a small thing.
