“Moonbug” – Producer/ Director/Cinematography/Writer: Nichola Bruce
Feature Documentary 2009/2010

 

 

 

Bitten by the 'Moonbug', photographer Steve Pyke set out on a journey across America in his search to meet and photograph the Apollo space pioneers. A journey in which he was to meet the adventurers, risk takers and dreamers who were behind one of the most historic endeavours of our time. From living rooms and moonscape deserts, to Cape Canaveral, Steve captures these pioneers in frank, revealing portraits, while
unravelling their very personal and divergent memories.
 
With rare archive footage, photographs from the FASE archive and an original score by Matt Johnson and The The, Moonbug is both a photographic road trip and an exploration of how photographs become signpost for history.
 
Featuring Photographer Steve Pyke, and the Apollo Team:

It is a rare and wonderful experience to visit with the men who went to the moon. Steve Pyke has done it and thanks to Nichola Bruce’s compelling film MOONBUG everyone else can come along”  – Andrew Chaikin, author of ‘A Man on the Moon’
