Directed by David Fairhead, Armstrong is an exceptional and timely new feature documentary celebrating the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing. Dramatic, moving & deeply human, the film follows the life of Neil Armstrong from his childhood in rural Ohio, through to his first steps on the Moon - and the unwanted celebrity status that ensued. It is the story of a quiet, determined man who became an aviator, astronaut, husband, father and reluctant hero.
Neil Armstrong’s words are narrated by Harrison Ford and the film weaves together breath-taking NASA footage, re-mastered archive material, interviews with family and colleagues, and never-before-seen home movies, to tell the incredible story of a determined family man who became a global icon.
DIRECTOR: David Fairhead
