Breathtaking both in the scope of its vision and the exhilaration of the human emotions it captures, Al Reinert’s award-winning documentary For All Mankind is the story of the 24 men who traveled to the Moon—told in their words, in their voices, using the images of their experiences.

Without going to the moon, after watching this movie, you begin to feel where you are when you look at the moon. A hymn to the universe and, most of all, Earth in our own human words, with the ending reminding the material of which man is made of, in the words of Gene Cernan, "the stars are my home". Beware, however - "For All Mankind" makes you want to be a part of Apollo mission for life.
A film that could easily been about achievements in technology becomes a celebration of the people who made it possible. Instead of details about the craft or the inner workings of mission control, we are given firsthand accounts of the thoughts, feelings, and dreams of the men who have landed on the moon. Brian Eno's score accompanies the subject matter perfectly.
it shows us images so startling in their barren beauty that they sear themselves into your memory, and as a first hand account of perhaps mankinds greatest modern achievement its the next best thing to going to the moon for yourself.
