An exhilarating portrait of one of the founders of BASE jumping.
A visually-stunning look at the life and antics of Carl Boenish, a Californian who helped popularize skydiving in the 1970s and ‘80s. He founded the BASE jumping movement; its acronym derived from four categories of fixed objects one can jump from: building, antenna, span and Earth (ie a cliff). Like Man on Wire, it will challenge those viewers with a fear of heights, but it is a fascinating and ultimately moving story featuring some quite amazing footage.
