In the Shadow of the Moon |


In this documentary, astronaut Charlie Duke admires Neil Armstrong’s ”one small step” quip: ”I wouldn’t have had the self-control to do that. I would have been jumping up and down, Yahoo, man, I’m here!” Duke and nine others are the subject of David Sington’s film about the only surviving men to have walked on the moon. Interviews (minus the reclusive Armstrong) add context to archival footage, some of which has never been shown. ”There are just 24 people who’ve ever seen the whole earth with their own eyes,” says Sington. ”They’re the only people in human history who’ve really seen what we truly are.”
