Movie Info

Filmmaker Jeffrey Roth's documentary The Wonder of it All revisits the extensive space exploration of the late 1960s and early 1970s from a most unusual angle: the psychological impact of extraterrestrial charting on the individual astronauts. Of the 12 Americans who set foot on the moon between 1969 and 1972 and subsequently readjusted to civilian life, Roth interviews 7 - Buzz Aldrin, Charlie Duke, Gene Cernan, Harrison Schmitt, John Young, Edgar Mitchell and Alan Bean - who offer intimate and candid reflections on their personal experiences from childhood through the present, their recollections of space travel and the NASA space program per se, and their postflight experiences in daily life.
