Just when you thought you’d seen all there was to see in regards to groundbreaking moment in history when we put a man on the moon – comes Apollo 11, the latest documentary from Todd Douglas Miller. To mark this astonishing film’s release, we sat down with the director alongside the archive producer Stephen Slater, to talk about this incredible piece of filmmaking.

We discuss the challenges in bringing this amount of footage together and telling such a gripping story with it, and whether the task ahead felt overwhelming to them both. They also tell us whether Buzz Aldrin has seen the film, and why they believe there has been a resurgence of late into this particular event, and what still compels viewers 50 years on.
