Entertainment Reviews:

New York Times - 03/16/1990
"...Re-creates the sense of immensity involved in space travel....An amazingly fresh visual immersion in space..."
Los Angeles Times - 01/19/1990
"...Dazzling, exhilarating....FOR ALL MANKIND is a remarkable labor of love....An unprecedented thrill..."
USA Today - 07/09/1993
"...The film is more authoritative than any space equivalent you can imagine..."
A.V. Club - 07/15/2009
"It's breathtaking....Reinart unearths stunning footage -- far removed from the fuzzy copies used as B-roll in other documentaries -- that captures the full scale of NASA's accomplishment."

Product Description:

Shot between December 1968 and November 1972, in the heyday of the space program, FOR ALL MANKIND tells the true story of the 24 men who travelled to the moon as the entire US watched in awe. Using previously unseen NASA film of the nine manned Apollo space missions and the narration of the astronauts themselves, the film presents an exhilarating portrait of an incredible human achievement.

Product Description:

In July 1969, the space race ended when Apollo 11 fulfilled President Kennedy's challenge of "landing a man on the Moon and returning him safely to the Earth." No one who witnessed the lunar landing will ever forget it. Al Reinert's documentary For All Mankind is the story of the twenty-four men who traveled to the Moon, told in their words, in their voices, using the images of their experiences. Forty years later, it remains the most radical, visually dazzling work of cinema yet made about this earth-shaking event.

Plot Synopsis:

Pulled from several million feet of archival film and eighty hours of interviews with the men who lived the experience, FOR ALL MANKIND is the official story of the Apollo missions to the moon, which took place between 1968 and 1972. Capturing the beauty of the technology, the enthusiasm of the astronauts and the pride of the nation that watched, the film steers clear of any political ramifications of the time, choosing wisely to present the stunning footage of the actual events with voice overs from the men themselves, creating a fitting tribute to a proud event in American history.
