Watch Dirk Braun’s FLYING BOAT
As if the skies adorned with thousands of sleek aircraft making their way to the largest aviation event were not enough to set the stage for the industry’s most prominent week (The 68th EAA AirVenture Fly-in at Oshkosh, WI), add to the mix the anticipation of LA-Aspen- based Dirk Braun’s World Premiere of FLYING BOAT, and the true spirit of aviation is born.
Just in time with the return of travel, the break-out documentary by Aspen-based Red Mtn Productions, and released through Falling Forward Films, will make its theatrical debut at EAA’s fly-in theater.
As part of the film’s unveiling, a stunning Grumman Albatross aircraft, featured in the movie, will make a special fly-in appearance prior to the World Premiere.
The 77-minute aviation documentary is about the experience of flying the legendary Grumman Albatross, a near perfect blend of form and function, told through 10 passionate mechanics and the pilots who have restored, fly, and maintain the last remaining examples of this legendary aircraft.
FLYING BOAT is about freedom, aspiration, the synergy of man and machine, and the artful relationship with motion, beauty and dreaming that is expressed metaphorically. Breathtaking aerial footage of the aircraft in motion is integrated with untapped archival footage from the long lost era of adventure and romance.
