Chasing the Moon, a film by Robert Stone, reimagines the race ot the moon for a new generation, up-ending much of the conventional mythology surrounding the effort. The series recasts the Space Age as a fascinating stew of scientific innnovation, political calculation, media spectacle, visionary impulses, and personal drama. Utilizing a visual feast of previously overlooked and lost archival material -- much of which has never before been seen by the public -- the film features a diverse cast of characters who played key roles in these historic events.

Space Chase USA, a new one-hour documentary film, explores the extraordinary, transformative events Cocoa Beach residents found themselves engaged in during the 1950s and 1960s as the exploration of the future arrived on their sleepy shores.
