A Universe of Stories Summer Film Festival for Adults: Apollo 11 (Unrated - 90 minutes)

Tuesday, July 16, 2019

Using extremely rare footage of the most famous flight ever, this visually stunning documentary explores the achievements of Apollo 11. Astronauts Buzz Aldrin, Neal Armstrong, and Michael Collins have a monumental task - landing a vehicle safely on the moon and then returning to Earth. After Aldrin and Armstrong successfully land the Eagle, Collins orbits around the moon in Apollo 11, awaiting their return. Along the way, Aldrin and Armstrong take some major steps, and plant a flag to celebrate the country that allowed them to walk on an object that is a quarter of a million miles from home.
Sponsored by the Needham Free Public Library, in support of A Universe of Stories Adult Summer Reading Program.
