An unprecedented look at the decade-long odyssey to land a man on the moon that pulls back the curtain on the familiar narrative of the moonshot that we think we know, revealing a fascinating stew of scientific innovation, political calculation, media spectacle, visionary impulses and personal drama.
Quote simply, absolutely sensational- top to bottom.!
From the ultra-cool opening sequence, (the graphics, the historic images from the 50's and 60's, to the dramatic music) you knew well that American Experience was about to present us with a dazzling, fact filled and humane adventure. And a Thouroughly American adventure at that.
Looking back 50 years ago to all involved on every level. These brave, brainy, brilliant Americans were our contemporaries!
Just think about that for a moment. They are US! The best "us" we could ever hope to be.
It's all in "Chasing the Moon" - simply the finest documentary of it's kind.
