This heart-racing documentary tells the story of Carl Boenish, the father of the BASE-jumping movement, whose early passion for skydiving drove him to ever more spectacular (and dangerous) feats of foot-launched human flight, utilizing parachutes following leaps from cliffs or skyscrapers. Recounted by his wife and jumping-partner Jean Boenish and their associates, the film follows them from their pioneering leaps in the 1970s to Carl and Jean’s Guinness record-breaking jump in Norway in 1984. Reminiscent of Man On Wire in its skillful combination of reenact- ments and the real thing, this true-life adventure most spectacularly employs Carl Boenish’s own footage of his jumps, produced by the 16mm camera he secured to his helmet. Writer/Director: Marah Strauch. (US 2014) 101 min.
