When preparations were being made for the historic Apollo 11 moon mission, three space stations around the globe were needed to keep track of the spaceflight. One was in California, one in Australia, and the third was in an unknown sleepy village in the middle of Spain. “The Most Ideal Place” shows the crucial role that the town of Fresnedillas played in July 1969. This documentary tells the story of the local Spaniards who unexpectedly became an important part of this monumental event. This film by David Regos won First Place Best Documentary in the 2019 CineSpace competition.
