Float, a documentary about rubber band-powered model airplanes
Simple yet sophisticated, these delicate rubber-band-powered airplanes fly through the air as if in slow motion. The hobby and its product are “a mixture of arts, and science, and technique.” The goal: Keep the lightweight plane flying for as long as possible.
Float, directed by Phil Kibbe, documents “the ultra-competitive sport of elite, stunningly-designed indoor model airplanes” through the experiences of Brett Sanborn and Yuan Kang Lee, two American hobbyists who are preparing for the F1D World Championships in Romania.
