Apollo 11 (2019)
NAME OF FILM: APOLLO 11 (2019)
DIRECTOR(S): Todd Douglas Miller
STARRING: Buzz Aldrin, Joan Ann Archer, Janet Armstrong
GENRE: Documentary Film
SYNOPSIS: The CNN documentary, “Apollo 11” might focus on the moon mission of a half-century ago, but in its own way the CNN Films documentary feels like a step into a time capsule. Meticulously recapturing the drama of that “giant leap for mankind” in 1969, it’s a wonderfully nostalgic if somewhat antiseptic reminder of what it meant to first break the bonds of Earth.
