This extraordinary documentary, presented by the Criterion Collection, was directed by Al Reinert, who spent 11 years making it. “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 Earth.’ No one who witnessed the lunar landing will ever forget it. Breathtaking both in the scope of its vision and the exhilaration of the human emotions it captures, For All Mankind is the story of 24 men who traveled to the Moon-told in their words, in their voices, using the images of their experiences.” - Al Reinert

A native Texan, Reinert is the Academy Award nominated screenwriter for Ron Howard’s Apollo 13 and episodes four and six of the HBO miniseries From Earth To The Moon.

Don’t miss this movie adventure which also features original music by Brian Eno. For All Mankind is available on Criterion DVD and Blu-Ray.

“…a wonderful, very impressive film.” - George Lucas

“People will look at this movie hundreds of years from now because it is the definitive film about the Apollo adventure. Al Reinert got the best film we shot.”

- Alan Bean, Apollo 12 and Skylab, UT graduate
