Feature Documentary

Genre-busting tale of how unemployed amateur cyclist, BRYAN ALLEN, and heavily in debt father of three, PAUL MACCREADY, together with a rag tag team of neuro diverse outliers, set out on a death-defying and madcap quest to untangle the mystery of human powered flight and in doing so win the most coveted prize in aviation. Built from a remarkable trove of recently discovered 16mm footage along with an arsenal of innovative techniques, this uplifting story of ingenuity, courage and determination, challenges us to question the assumptions we make about about society’s outliers and reminds us of how the stories we tell can help us to understand and perhaps change the world.
