I had the tremendous pleasure of shooting THE FLIGHT FANTASTIC for director Tom Moore. We wrapped our filming together almost 5 years ago, but this documentary was worth the wait! Tom's film invites us into the past and present of one of circus' greatest acts, the Flying Gaonas.
My wife and daughter were able to join me at the film's wonderful, celebratory Los Angeles premiere at the Egyptian on Hollywood Boulevard, where it screened to a packed house.
Next up is its New York premiere, at none other than Lincoln Center. On Friday, February 12th, THE FLIGHT FANTASTIC will be the opening night film of the Film Society of Lincoln Center's Dance on Camera Film Festival.
It was a real honor for me to be allowed into the lives of the Gaonas while filming this documentary. I was impressed by their hospitality and willingness to open up their homes to us, and the film would not have been such a success without their energy and vulnerability.
