  • Barnstorming

Barnstorming - A Documentary Film | Preview | PBS

Duration: 03:57
Program: Barnstorming

Barnstorming is the true story of an unexpected friendship that developed between a farm family and two pilots who literally dropped out of the sky. Their friendship has created a new tradition out of an old one long gone barnstorming. Barnstorming captures their annual gathering: the visceral exhilaration of flight, the anticipation of the barnstormers arrival, and celebration of the reunion. Shot in real time, and told in the participants' voices, the film immerses the viewer in the innocence of earlier times, the fleeting nature of childhood, and the joy of friendship. It is a testament to our ability to connect as human beings, no matter where we come from, or how we get there.

Produced and written by Bryan Reichhardt and Paul Glenshaw Directed by Bryan Reichhardt Co-director of photography Mark Betancourt Original music by Suzanne Brindamour With Support from the Alfred L. and Constance C. Wolf Aviation Fund
