Sam Neill stars in this 2000 comedy-drama that takes a semi-fictionalised look at the days before the Apollo 11 space mission in 1969, as a team of Australian technicians work alongside NASA to transmit live images of the moon landing around the world. Based on events that took places at the Parkes Observatory and the Honeysuckle Creek Tracking Station near Canberra.

Presented in partnership with the ANU Film Group and ACT Government.
