Float, documentary film

November 18, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm

Free

It’s a game of microns, milligrams and unlikely heroes as Brett Sanborn and Yuan Kang Lee, two American F1D plane competitors, prepare for and compete at the World Championships. These handmade planes weigh as little as a $1 bill and can fly unaided for over 40 minutes powered by a wound rubber band. Director Phillip Kibbe’s Float highlights the precise process and art of building these aircraft, the science of how they fly and the glory that patience and a little bit of Zen can bring.

At first glance, FLOAT may seem like a niche documentary for model plane enthusiasts. But everyone can learn from the graceful simplicity, loyal camaraderie, and undying devotion these competitors exhibit. – CIFF44
