During the Apollo lunar missions from 1968 to 1972, those onboard were given 16mm cameras and told to film anything and everything they could, in space, in orbit, and on the surface of the moon itself. Two decades later, filmmaker Al Reinert went into the NASA vaults to create this incredible film set to a soundtrack by Brian Eno.
What I love about this clip is that the two astronauts have gone through years of grueling training and selection processes to get to the moon and then when they finally get onto it’s surface, they start pissing about, like bored people in an office!
