What is When We Were Apollo about?
Who were the men and women of the Apollo Space Program? Where are they today? What do they think of the extraordinary effort they helped make possible? Half a century later, Project Apollo remains the single greatest initiative in peacetime the world has ever known. Its story speaks to the most beautiful characteristics of our humanity: a metaphor for our ability to rise to challenges once thought insurmountable and push past them with even bigger and bolder solutions. Behind every astronaut who set foot upon the moon and every figurehead who inspired us to get there was Apollo's massive workforce: a team of men and women over 400,000 strong--spanning race, socio-economics, culture and company--who came to understand that the overall Program was only as good as the effort they put into it. When We Were Apollo is a feature-length documentary offering an intimate and personal look at Apollo through the lives and experiences of some of its most inspiring behind-the-scenes figures: engineers, technicians, builders and contractors who spent the better part of a decade working to get us to the moon and back.
