Product description

Product Description

Moonwalk One. Kamecke's film could be placed in a time capsule and removed some time in the distant future as an exact record of our feelings at the time. So said Kathleen Carroll of the New York Daily News in 1972. NASA commissioned director Theo Kamecke to make the documentary only six weeks before Apollo 11 s flight to the Moon in July 1969. But instead of a simple documentary film, what transpired was a philosophical and poetic record of Man s first attempt to walk on another world. Opening dramatically with another of mankind s great achievements Stonehenge the film puts the triumph of the Moon shot into its proper historical context. Filmed across the World as the mission unfolded, Moonwalk One uniquely captured the essence of Apollo 11 in a way that subsequent documentaries could only mimic. Combined with Charles Morrow s breathtaking, avant-garde score and Laurence Luckinbill s inspiring narration this is a classic film for all time and makes for fascinating viewing today from the perspective of the early 21st Century. As Joseph Gelmis of the New York daily Newsday declared in 1969; Moonwalk One deserves to be a companion piece to Stanley Kubrik s masterwork 2001: A Space Odyssey . The Restoration. Working closely with Theo, the producers have re-mastered his documentary classic for future generations to enjoy. Combining the only existing full-length 35mm print with recently restored NASA film shot by the astronauts themselves, they have created a vibrant new High Definition digital master of the movie. Together with a director s commentary, a host of extra features and a new 5.1 sound track, this is indeed the ultimate time capsule , recording the last year of the 1960s and the historic flight of Apollo 11.

Review

Theo Kamecke who directed the documentary MOONWALK ONE, said his intention was not merely to assemble a truly historical view of our species first attempt to touch another planet, but also to present a portrait of place and time and culture in which it happened. That s exactly what MOONWALK ONE is. Beginning 3000 years ago at Stonehenge, believed to be man s first observatory, the film leaps to Cape Kennedy getting ready for the moon launch. It is this kind of immense conceptual sweep that sets MOONWALK ONE far above all the other dozens of documentaries made on the subject and within that broad historical framework there is an extraordinary sense of fine detail. Indian peasants serenely looking at the dawn of the morning of the launch, there s some original ultra-slow motion film of the launch itself that turns the fiery blast into exquisitely beautiful abstractions. The awe reflected in the faces of he people in the trailer park at Cape Kennedy as they crane up to watch the fading rocket, and the documentary overwhelmingly captures the sense of paradox by contrasting all banal vulgarity that surrounded the noble impulse may have been mankind s first truly religious act. The commentary is sparse and simple. This is the first documentary worthy of the immensity of the moon launch itself and the first to take a truly global view and capture a sense of nostalgia for the planet we began to love only as we left it. The first to perceive the fusing of myth and history and science. Kevin Saunders ABC TV News November 1972 --Kevin Saunders, ABC TV News, November 1972
