Some of the footage may be familiar, even iconic, but the story of Apollo 11 has never been told like this. Award-winning director David Sington builds an extraordinary behind-the-scenes history of the astronauts that first visited the moon, weaving together pristine footage (some discovered in NASA's cold storage) and interviews with key members of the Apollo program. The result injects a new sense of wonder into one of humankind's great achievements, following the story from John F. Kennedy's seemingly impossible directive — to put a man on the moon in less than ten years — through the thrilling, terrifying moments as the lunar module approaches its ghostly destination. Winner of the Audience Award at the 2007 Sundance Film Festival, In the Shadow of the Moon salutes America's unmatched can-do spirit and celebrates the thirst for knowledge and adventure that lives inside each of us.
