Filmmaker David Sington merges the magnificence of science with the compelling drama of the human quest for advancement with this fascinating and visually stunning meditation on the historic Apollo space program. Philip scored the soundtrack for film which was awarded the Audience Award at the Sundance Film Festival.
“This resounding theme of victory is quite literally underscored by composer Philip Sheppard. His music evokes ideas of exploration, expressing optimism and exultation. The score, performed by a 60-piece orchestra, is perhaps the most hopeful and inspiring one since “Chariots of Fire” (1981).”
“The film features all-new interviews with the astronauts themselves, still bright and viable after all these years and full of descriptive stories to tell, as well as never-before-seen footage accompanied by Philip Sheppard’s wondrously uplifting score.”
“British filmmaker David Sington does a superb job of eliciting illuminating anecdotes from the astronauts and mixing them with little-seen archival footage and a soaring symphonic score by Philip Sheppard.”

“The music from Philip Sheppard, which underscores the great space footage, is just right from popular to classical notes.”
