Moonwalk One was commissioned by NASA to cover their historic Apollo 11 Moon shot in July 1969. The director, Theo Kamecke, had a vision for the film - to create something that would mark the historic, philosophical and epic nature of this greatest of endeavours upon which mankind was about to embark. With an original score by Charles Morrow and a commanding narration by Laurence Luckinbill, Theo’s Apollo doc has been described as perhaps the most significant time capsule record of Apollo 11 ever made.

However, for the next few decades Moonwalk One was practically forgotten. Working closely with Theo, Moonwalk One was re-mastered – combining a unique 35mm director’s cut with the newly transferred 16mm NASA flight film media, to create a new HD digital master of the movie.

Producer Christopher Riley will introduce the film and share his thoughts of working closely with Director Theo Kamecke to create Moonwalk One: The Directors Cut.
