Acclaimed British director and performer Andrew Dawson recreates a constantly entrancing documentary of the historic Apollo 11 moon landing using only his hands and a black-draped table. Accompanied by Shostakovich’s 10th symphony and a dramatic, lively narration, Dawson takes audiences from Houston to the moon and returns them safely to Earth, conveying the colossal distances and the risks involved simply through his skilled hand movements and wry facial expressions.
