Chasing the Moon
A 6-hour documentary mini-series for PBS called Chasing the Moon, an epic political and social history of the space race. Nominated for an EMMY for Exceptional Merit in Documentary Filmmaking and a WGA Award for Best Documentary Screenplay, Winner of Best Documentary at AFI/DocFest.
“Earth Days” is a quietly majestic survey of the hard-won successes and instructive failures of the American environmental movement. Avoiding the alarmist tone characteristic of many ecologically themed documentaries, Robert Stone’s latest opus is a moving, elegiac, deeply contemplative work that leaves the viewer not with a save-the-world checklist, but rather a spirit of hopeful reflection.
“ Exposive. A gripping documentary that brilliantly reconstructs the entire freak event.”
“Amazing. Director Stone illuminates this fantastic narrative as vividly as it has ever been. Fascinating.”
Guerrilla: The Taking of Patty Hearst
“Potent. A model of the documentary form, with just the right balance of tension and humor. One of the ten best films of the year.”
