Dramatic and deeply human, this is the story of Neil Armstrong, the first man on the moon.
Armstrong’s words are narrated by Harrison Ford, alongside breath-taking NASA footage and never-before-seen home movies. This intimate and often surprising documentary, tells the incredible untold story of a determined family man who became a reluctant world icon.
Remarkably frank interviews with Armstrong’s family, including first wife Janet and his two sons, Armstrong gives moving insight into the iconic astronaut’s personal narrative.
From his close-knit upbringing in Wapakoneta, Ohio to the community he created with his space race colleagues in Houston, Armstrong explores the life of a very private man, with an unparalleled passion for flying.
The screening on Tue 9th July was followed by a recorded director Q&A.
