BIRDMEN Wingsuit Documentary - Ellen Brennan

 
BIRDMEN Wingsuit Documentary - Ellen Brennan
 
March 08, 2012 - 
 

BIRDMEN is the first documentary ever made that covers the past, present, and possible future of wingsuit BASE jumping. During the film, professional wingsuit pilots Ellen Brennan, Mike Steen, and Matt Gerdes escort you through the inspiring yet tragic history of their ancestral birdmen and then show you the cutting edge of human flight in the year 2012. Matt, Mike, and Ellen are some of the most talented wingsuit pilots in the world – during the film, they pioneer new wingsuit flights in the European Alps and experience the highs and lows of a flying life. Finally, the future of the sport is envisioned, where scientists in Switzerland explain how pilots can soon achieve perfectly balanced and relatively safe flight paths using cruise-control autonomous systems and small engines. -Matt Sheridan
