Living History Series Presents “Armstrong”
July 19 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm$10 – $12
ARMSTRONG is a dramatic and emotional documentary that features never-before-seen family home-movie footage, along with still and moving images that chronicle Neil Armstrong’s incredible life. With the support of the Armstrong family, including his two sons Rick and Mark, the film details his near-death experiences as a fighter pilot in Korea, his test pilot days, the drama and excitement of the Gemini 8 and Apollo 11 missions, and the challenges that followed his extraordinary fame.
Directed by David Fairhead ARMSTRONG is the definitive life story of Neil Armstrong: from his childhood in rural Ohio through to those historic first steps on the Moon – and the unwanted celebrity status that ensued.
In his own words David said “Telling this story is a documentary filmmaker’s dream. When Neil made his small step onto the lunar surface, it marked his transformation from mere man to global celebrity – something he spent the rest of his life trying to avoid. Through the testimony of colleagues, friends and family we outline his achievements and tell the seemingly familiar, yet little known tale of the First Man on the Moon.”
