POINT OF NO RETURN
MONDAY, APRIL 22 • 6:30
IN PERSON: FILMMAKERS QUINN KANALY & NOEL DOCKSTADER WITH PANELISTS
Soaring at 26,000 feet without a drop of fuel, nothing is predictable, including weather, technology and the fate of the pilots. Bertrand Piccard, psychiatrist and balloonist, and André Borschberg, engineer and jet-fighter pilot, built what many experts said was impossible—a solar-powered airplane capable of flying day and night. With the wingspan of a 747 jet and the weight of a car, Solar Impulse is fragile. Technical failures, unplanned landings and stormy weather jeopardize the mission, and the pilot and the crew must rise again. This story of hope, courage and perseverance is our special presentation for Earth Day. Directors: Quinn Kanaly, Noel Dockstader. (USA 2017) 95 min. plus discussion.
