"La La Land" director Damien Chazelle and star Ryan Gosling reteam for "First Man", the true story of NASA's quest to land a man on the moon. A visceral, first-person account exploring the sacrifices made in order to complete one of the most dangerous missions in history.

89% "fresh" rating on aggregate film review site RottenTomatoes.com:

"Skillful and compelling" (New Yorker)

"What makes the movie so memorable, so good, so strong, is the unvarnished, warts-and-all perspective." (Chicago Sun-Times)

"A movie so revelatory in its realism, so gritty in its physicality, that it becomes a drama of thrillingly hellbent danger and obsession." (Variety)

I'll be introducing the film and also leading a discussion afterward, for anyone who wants to stay for that. I hope to see you there!

P.S. Turns out that this will be the first showing of the film in Germany, so I recommend reserving tickets just in case.
