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 “the 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." — John Anderson, Indiewire
