AUGUST 2017 at the SALON

a work-in-progress presented by Phil Kibbe and Ben Saks

A glimpse into the lives of introverted competitors and their stunningly designed model airplanes. From cavernous underground salt mines to the world’s largest blimp hangars, Float enters the world of F1D pilots - revealing the challenges facing a newcomer to the competitive hobby and the history of this century-old lost art as it struggles to stay alive in modern society.

A blend of time-lapse photography, archival material, animated motion graphics, and detailed interviews filmed over the course of seven years on four continents, Float will be screened as a work in progress, with feedback and critical review welcome. Director Phil Kibbe and Producer Ben Saks will be present, and Ben will demo the airplanes after the screening.
