Bitten by the 'Moon-bug', photographer Steve Pyke sets 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 and an original score by Matt Johnson and The The, Moonbug is both a photographic road trip and an exploration of how photographs become signposts for history.
Filmed in 1999, it took 10 years for the director to raise the finance to edit the film.
Followed by a conversation with director Nichola Bruce.
