Rental Format(s): Super 8mm, 24 fps

AIRBORNE is an energetic journey set in the cockpit of the MD-82 jet airliner. It is a distillation of some 70 flights (120 hours) with my friend Captain Ipavec who flies for Adria Airways, a Ljubljana-based airline. The axis of the film is the relationship between the outside world - Yugoslavia and Western Europe - as framed by the cockpit windows, and the complex digital instrumentation that assists the aircraft guidance. The film takes the viewer through swift changes in flight and swishes through many weather conditions - wintery nights, blue heights, fog, rain and storm. ... The approaching landing strips at night reveal mysterious lights and configurations reminiscent of the cross. The soundtrack is an integral part of the visual rhythm and consists of electronically processed cockpit signals, pilot communications and such.
