Todd Douglas Miller on his new film 'Apollo 11'

There aren't many events in American history more covered in film than the moon landing. You know the story. Neil Armstrong landed the U.S. Apollo Lunar Module Eagle and stepped out first. Then, Buzz Aldrin touched down on the moon’s surface 19 minutes later. But you've never seen anything quite like the new documentary "Apollo 11."

The film is a monumental achievement in filmmaking. It uses never before seen archival footage to tell the amazing tale. There's no narration. No interviews. All images and voices from the mission guide us through the journey. We'll chat with director Todd Douglas Miller about the stunning new film. He'll give us behind the scenes look at what it was like to browse hundreds of hours of footage from the 1960's to tell the incredible story.
