Originally made to commemorate the twentieth anniversary of the first moon landing, this revealing film presents the stories of the eight Apollo astronauts - men quite different from the idealized and sanitized image of the NASA public relations mold. In their own words, Jim Irwin, Alan Bean, Al Worden, Buzz Aldrin, Pete Conrad, Stuart Roosa, Edgar Mitchell and Rusty Schweickart share their personal experiences, including the repercussions of their sudden fame and the different directions their lives took after their historic flights. THE OTHER SIDE OF THE MOON is an eloquent and far-ranging exploration of the nature of heroism and a provocative look at the U.S. space program.
