The Other Side of the Moon

CTC Documentary

Sorry, there are no upcoming session times for The Other Side of the Moon at Dendy Canberra

Synopsis

THE OTHER SIDE OF THE MOON features eight Apollo astronauts who intimately share their experience of going to the moon, describing what happened to them while they were there, and how their lives have been shaped by the experience in the 20 years after. The program to land a man on the moon became one of the greatest achievements of our civilization. Some of these astronauts went through amazing transformations. Some had trouble coping with the fame and then abrupt abandonment of public attention. In these candid portraits of the early astronauts, we learn about post-orbital depression, divorces, searches for meaning, flashes of mysticism, and discoveries of God.

A 90-minute documentary special for PBS about the transformational experiences of the Apollo astronauts who traveled to the moon, and what happened to them in the 20 years after. Winner of the Gold Award at the Houston International Film Festival, the Gold Apple Award at the National Educational Film Festival, the CINE Golden Eagle, and shown at the Sundance Film Festival. Broadcast on PBS, Cinemax, and The Learning Channel.
