For All Mankind is a 1989 historical documentary covering the Apollo space missions from the 1962 inception of the program to the Moon landing in 1969. Beginning with President Kennedy's announcement of the American wish to land on the moon first, the film primarily uses the recordings of the astronauts and mission control engineers and scientists from the original NASA footage to give a uniquely personal and close up perspective on this landmark moment. The film covers the astronauts from the moment they don their spacesuits, to seeing the Earth and moon from capsule window and splashing down back on Earth. The film also captures the more ordinary moments of space travel, with the travelers requesting the latest sports scores as well as joking around on the team. There is also the genuine awe of the experience of stepping on the Moon's surface. Director Al Reinert uses the music of Brian Eno to create a mood of wonder for this thorough and fascinating look at the people who explored outer space "for all mankind."
