During the Apollo lunar missions from 1968 to 1972, those on-board were given 16mm cameras and told to film anything and everything they could, in space, in orbit, and on the surface of the moon itself. Two decades later, filmmaker Al Reinert went into the NASA vaults to create this extraordinary compendium of their journeys and experiences. Assembled from hundreds of hours of the astronauts' own footage, with a soundtrack made up of their memories and a specially composed score by Brian Eno, the film takes the form of one journey to the moon and back again, building with elegant simplicity and exquisite construction to create an overwhelming vision of human endeavour and miraculous experience. At once intimate and awe-inspiring, For All Mankind is a genuinely mesmerising firsthand document of one of the high points of the 20th century. The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present Criterion's beautiful high-definition restoration of the film for its UK home viewing premiere in a comprehensive, director-approved edition.
