Languages of publication
The article analyzes the portrayals of the trip to the Moon in the following motion pictures: Le Voyage dans la Lune (dir. Georges Méliès, 1902), Apollo 13 (dir. Ron Howard, 1995), Opération Lune (dir. William Karell, 2002) and First Man (dir. Damien Chazelle, 2018). The author addresses the changes in the symbolic dimension of the cinematic portrayals of Moon conquest as well as the visual representation of those changes. The principal focus of the article is on the special place of the Moon conquest within American mythology and recent attempts at both restitution and demythologization of this particular myth.
