In The Shadow Of The Moon

  • slideshow_large

Synopsis

In the Shadow of the Moon is an intimate epic, which vividly communicates the daring and the danger, the pride and the passion, of an extraordinary era in history. Between 1968 and 1972, the world watched in awe each time an American spacecraft voyaged to the Moon. Only 12 men walked upon its surface and they remain the only human beings to have stood on another world.

In the Shadow of the Moon brings together for the first, and very possibly the last time, surviving crew members from every single Apollo mission which flew to the Moon, and allows them to tell their story in their own words. They emerge as surprisingly eloquent, witty, emotional and very human.
