Kundura Cinema’s November film programme presents a special selection of films that celebrates the 50th anniversary of the historic Moon landing. Titled “A Journey to the Moon”, the film selection pays homage to American astronaut Neil Armstrong and his journey to the Moon and into history.
“A Journey to the Moon” centers around the films emphasizing the bravery of humans in the face of the unknown by exploring the depths of space. Get ready for an enchanting journey into space within Kundura Cinema’s historical atmosphere.
Ticket to the Moon by the director Veronika Janatkova gathers together the participants signed up for the waiting list of Pan Am Airways’ first commercial flights to the Moon. It is the Cold War Period, political and economic tensions permeated daily life and Pan Am Airways has the best solution: a trip to the Moon! The film centers around the hopeful story of 100,000 space enthusiasts today and humorously tells their individual moon stories.
Houston, We Have A Problem! Slovenian director Ziga Virc evolves around an intense space race, namely “the space program exchange” allegedly took place between the US and Yugoslavia during the Cold War. Receiving numerous positive and negative criticisms after its premiere in 2016 at Tribeca Film Festival, the documentary includes the real footage of the 35th president of the United States, John F. Kennedy.
Based on the Austrian director Fritz Lang’s wife Thea von Harbou’s book The Rocket to the Moon, the silent film Woman in the Moon follows a group of people searching for gold in space. Directed by Lang, one of the most assertive director worldwide, the film is also considered as one of the first examples of the sci-fi genre. Woman in the Moon will be screened as a part of the “Live Music to Silent Film” events of Kundura Cinema with a special guest performer.
Best known by building a set inside NASA to create a microgravity effect director Ron Howard’s Apollo 13 is based on the true story of the ill-fated 13th Apollo mission bound for the Moon. Leading actors of this tragic story includes Tom Hanks, Kevin Bacon, and Bill Paxton.
