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.
The Academy announced shortlists for the 92nd Academy Awards in nine categories including Documentary Feature, International Feature Film, Documentary Short Subject, Animated Short Film, Live Action Short Film and Visual Effects.
