July 20, 2019, marks 50 years since that “giant leap for Mankind”—the day humans reached the moon for the first time. The Day We Walked on the Moon is the inside story, told from the unique, first-hand perspective of key figures on the Apollo 11 Mission and those left behind—watching, waiting, and witnessing the biggest story of their lives.
Watched live by 600 million people around the world, NASA officials reveal how close the Apollo 11 came to failure while family members recall nervously listening to the radio feed, wondering if their loved ones would make it home. The film also explores the importance of the first Moon Mission to America in an era dominated by an unpopular war and nuclear rivalry with Russia.
