Locally based film archivist Stephen Slater managed to get hold of cans of unprocessed 70mm film originally shot, but never used, for a documentary of the first NASA mission to the moon. His work on this previously unseen footage culminated in an extraordinary account of the Apollo 11 expedition, released to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the mission and first shown at the Sheffield Documentary Festival in June. It’s a documentary like no other and the quality of the images is astonishing.
This film is programmed by Buxton Film and features no trailers.
