Join us for a FREE advanced screening of the new three-night series "Chasing the Moon," June 22 at 7pm.
"Chasing the Moon," a film by Robert Stone, reimagines the race to the moon for a new generation, upending much of the conventional mythology surrounding the effort. The series recasts the Space Age as a fascinating stew of scientific innovation, political calculation, media spectacle, visionary impulses and personal drama. Utilizing a visual feast of previously overlooked and lost archival material much of which has never before been seen by the public the film features a diverse cast of characters who played key roles in these historic events. Among those included are astronauts Buzz Aldrin, Frank Borman and Bill Anders; Sergei Khrushchev, son of the former Soviet premier and a leading Soviet rocket engineer; Poppy Northcutt, a 25-year old mathematics whiz who gained worldwide attention as the first woman to serve in the all-male bastion of NASAs Mission Control; and Ed Dwight, the Air Force pilot selected by the Kennedy administration to train as Americas first black astronaut. The film premieres across three nights on PBS, beginning July 8.
