ThinkFilm Snags Apollo Mission Doc “In The Shadow of the Moon”

ThinkFilm Snags Apollo Mission Doc "In The Shadow of the Moon"

ThinkFilm has secured a North American deal to David Sington‘s “In The Shadow of the Moon,” a new documentary about the Apollo space program. Characterized as a multiple seven-figure deal, the pact will likely put the film in theaters this Fall in association with Discovery Films with ThinkFilm eyeing a big audience for the documentary. The film, premiering in the world documentary competition at Sundance is a riveting, first hand account from the Apollo astronauts that also offers a lot of rarely seen NASA footage that makes for a gorgeous big screen experience. Calling the documentary “epic,” ThinkFilm head of theatrical distribution Mark Urman told indieWIRE, “The most important thing is that it makes you feel excited about human endeavor and human possibilities.” He said the pricey pact represents the new ThinkFilm. He add that it recalls “a time when the whole world looked up to America and celebrated America’s achievements and American heroes.” Urman concluded that he is aiming to draw, “anyone who ever had a dream and anyone who ever paid 10 bucks for a movie.” [Eugene Hernandez and James Israel]
