Acclaimed documentary “Apollo 11,” which features newly-discovered, large format footage of the first moon landing mission, premieres tonight on CNN with limited commercial interruptions.
Assembled primarily from archival footage and more than 11,000 hours of audio recordings, director Todd Douglas Miller and his production team worked closely with the National Archives and NASA to locate, digitize, and restore all of the available media related to the moon landing mission.
The result offers viewers an immersive experience of the original July 1969 mission flown by Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, and Michael Collins.
“Apollo 11” premiered at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival in January and was released in commercial IMAX and traditional movie theaters in March.
