About the Event

For All Mankind

Directed by Al Reinert

United States, 1989, 80 minutes

Al Reinert’s documentary For All Mankind covers the nine crewed Apollo missions, with narration from 13 of the 24 astronauts involved, as one single mission. Forty years after the first moon landing, it remains the most radical, visually dazzling work of cinema yet made about the Apollo missions, and especially Apollo 11. With a score from Brian Eno and made from NASA’s own infinite film archive and documentation. To say it has gone on to influence a new generation of filmmakers since its release 30 years ago is an understatement. Film followed by tribute to Al Reinert (1947-2018), who was from Houston, and received an Oscar nomination for For All Mankind as well as for co-writing the screenplay for Apollo 13.
