NASA’s Apollo missions to the Moon and back flip to new, pulsing life

Created in 1999, the Project Apollo Archive is a digital library of images related to NASA’s manned lunar landings. In Apollo Missions, the US filmmaker Tim Harrison gives still images from the collection fresh new life, treating them as a flip book-style animation. Featuring a spot-on score from the Austin, Texas-based rock band Built By Snow, this short collage film transforms the pictures from 1961 to 1972 into a dizzying journey from Earth to the Moon, and back again.

Director: Tim Harrison
