For All Mankind

SUPPORT

Blast off as The Loft Cinema celebrates the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon Landing with a special screening of the award-winning documentary, For All Mankind, screened on the actual day of the Moon Landing in 1969! This Science on Screen event will feature an introduction by Dr. William Boynton, UA professor of Astrobiology Research, Cosmochemistry, Lunar Studies, Small Bodies and Geochemistry. Dr. Boynton analyzed Apollo samples after they were first brought back to Earth, and has been involved with recent work on the Moon. In between, he has built instruments for spacecraft traveling to a variety of places in the Solar System, including Mars.
In July 1969, the space race ended when Apollo 11 fulfilled President Kennedy’s challenge of “landing a man on the Moon and returning him safely to the Earth.” No one who witnessed the lunar landing will ever forget it. Al Reinert’s documentary For All Mankind is the story of the twenty-four men who traveled to the moon, told in their words, in their voices, using the images of their experiences. Fifty years after the first moon landing, it remains the most radical, visually dazzling work of cinema yet made about this earthshaking event. Winner of the Sundance Grand Jury Prize, this stunning documentary also features a memorable music score by rock composer Brian Eno, and portions of its incredible footage were later used by filmmaker Ron Howard for his 1995 feature film, Apollo 13. (Dir. by Al Reinert, 1989, USA, 80 mins, Not Rated)
