Moonwalk: Film on Film

Did you know that: before digital streaming, DVD, and even video tape there was 16mm film? For over 50 years it was the primary means of getting movies- for both education and entertainment, into our libraries, classrooms, businesses and homes. Pratt is excited to host 16mm geek Bob from “Bob Presents” as he showcases some of the weird, wonderful and rare 16mm films in the Pratt collection.
 
Moonwalk was released in 1971 by Theo Kamecke documenting the Apollo 11 moon landing. In 1967, knowing the importance of the upcoming Apollo 11 launch, and man's first steps on the moon, NASA commissioned a documentary to be made. The filmmakers decided which of the thousands of hours of NASA footage to use and how to craft that footage into a meaningful story worthy of the incredible effort. 

There will be an opening short and time and weather permitting we may do some moon viewing after the event.
