-- In the Shadow of the Moon, a feel-good flick that recounts the gutsy glory of the Apollo space missions, has become the first documentary hit at this year's Sundance Film Festival.
Director David Sington's film, which uses previously unseen NASA footage and new interviews with 10 surviving Apollo astronauts to illuminate the historic space program, played this week to sold-out Sundance crowds and became the festival's first nonfiction film to be sold to a distributor.

It was screened for NASA employees and appears to be mentioned very favourably on NASA Deputy Director Shana Dale's blog here.
I mentioned to David that I was disheartened because I had been reviewing some blog entries someone sent me and they were all about the theory that the Moon landings were a hoax. For those of us who were alive during those Apollo missions and watched the events on television leading up to the first landing, it is inconceivable that these missions were staged and filmed on some Hollywood set. There is no way anyone could realistically keep the lid on a hoax of such epic proportions.
