About “Chasing the Moon”
“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. “Chasing the Moon” utilizes a visual feast of previously overlooked and lost archival material — much of which has never before been seen by the public.
