50-year cinema event: Apollo 11 is opening
The space premiere will take place at the Falcon Club Cinema Boutique. The sensational American movie Apollo 11 by Todd Douglas Miller will make it possible to experience one of the greatest adventures in the history of mankind. You can watch a documentary film from June 28 to July 10.
The documentary film was created on the basis of archival footage never seen before from a 70 mm film stock and more than 11 thousand hours of unsystematized audio recordings. Apollo 11 will introduce you to the inner sanctum of NASA's most famous mission - the one that first brought people to the moon and turned the names of Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin into household names.
With the eyes of the astronauts themselves, the team of the Mission Control Center and millions of spectators on Earth, you can see and live with them hour after hour those significant days of 1969, when humanity made a giant leap into the future.
“I will never forget how we found the film stock and first watched it. There were two bobines, and we inserted them into the model of the scanner created by the guys from “Final Frame”. We saw glimpses of the image approximately every 3-4 seconds. We all knew that it would be good, but we did not know how good. We were speechless from how beautifully this was shot,” says director Todd Douglas Miller.
The film premiered in January as part of the Sundance Film Festival. There, the movie was nominated for the Grand Prix in the category "Best Documentary" and won the prize for the best editing of a documentary. In July, Apollo 11 will also be presented at the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival in the “Another View” program.
For filmmaker Todd Douglas Miller, Apollo 11 is the second film nominated for the Sundance Grand Prix as the best documentary. In 2014, his film Dinosaur 13 also claimed this award.
The Guardian calls Apollo 11 “one of the most prominent films about space in the history of cinema”, Time Out - “the most perfect film that could be shot on this subject,” and IndieWire - “amazing and breathtaking picture.” New York Post summarizes: “This is a space film in every way. A documentary masterpiece pushing the boundaries of the genre.”
The film is being shown as part of the project “Listapad. Collection".
