A new film focused on the Apollo 8 mission in 1968 is set to arrive on Earth Day 2018.

The world premier of Earthrise tells the story of the first image captured of the Earth from space in 1968.

Told solely by the Apollo 8 astronauts – Frank Borman, Jim Lovell, and Bill Anders — the film recounts their experiences and memories and explores the beauty, awe, and grandeur of the Earth against the blackness of space.
