For All Mankind
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.
Followed by a brief conversation with artist/curator Peter Lucas and the film’s producer, Betsy Broyles Breier about Al Reinert and the genesis of the film, and in celebration of the 30th anniversary of For All Mankind.
Al Reinert (1947-2018) was from Houston, and received an Oscar nomination for For All Mankind, as well as for co-writing the screenplay for Apollo 13.
