Apollo 10½: The space race through director Richard Linklater’s eyes

Apollo 10½: A space age childhood follows a young boy’s fantasies about travelling to space, using beautiful rotoscoped animation to tell his story. Actor Jack Black and writer-director, Richard Linklater discuss the film and what it was like growing up in Houston during the Apollo era. For hippies at the time, says Linklater, the space race was “kind of nationalistic and a waste of money. I wanted to bring that into the movie as well and not have it just be this, ‘Oh, everybody loved it,” he says, “there’s always conflict.” At the time, the conflict was between the US and the Soviet Union, which loomed large over culture. Making comparisons to today, “Russia is kind of, you know, something to be afraid of,” he says.
