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. Forty years after the first moon landing, it remains the most radical, visually dazzling work of cinema yet made about this earthshaking event.

As the years go by, the epic quest of the Apollo program seems like a fantastic dream, some sort of mid-century remake of a Méliès fantasy. “For All Mankind” embraces the dream. It’s less of a documentary and more of a visual ballad that uses NASA footage you’ve seen before, but presents it here as with a visual impact that is, at times, simply breathtaking. The images are complimented by the simple, cornfed eloquence of the Apollo astronuats themselves, steely-eyed Cold Warriors with the pragmatic wisdom to behold the wonders of the Universe as they sailed this new frontier.

An amazing achievement in documentary film work.

May we always keep this film.
