Stunning archival footage from renowned aerial cinematographer and BASE jumping pioneer Carl Boenish frames a narrative of love and obsession in this heart-racing documentary. Boenish, known as β€œthe father of BASE jumping,” was considered insane by many when, in 1968, he gave up his career in electrical engineering to pursue his passion for foot-launched human flight. As an adrenaline junkie, Boenish pushed the possibilities to the absolute limit with breathtaking stunts and courageous athleticism.

"One of the best U.S. docs of the year." β€” John Anderson, Indiewire
