This film was made by Theo Kamecke on contract to NASA and shot during the Apollo 11 mission.  It was made for theatrical release but by the time it was ready for theatres there was little interest and so it sat in vaults for many years.  This includes a lot of footage that was never used elsewhere and seldom seen.  We have a 16mm print of the abbreviated 1-hour version on loan from the Marshall Spaceflight Center archives.  This is a beautiful and artistic view of the pinnacle of the Space Race.

Alien teenager Derek abandons his crew to search for a new life on Earth, while one of his crewmates is sent to kill him while they attempt to eradicate human life in order to farm Earth with giant lobster-like livestock.
