    Brief synopsis

    flight is a frame-by-frame re-editing of an astronaut walking on the moon into a seven-minute long meditation on technological transcendence. The unstable, stuttering image depicts the astronaut's struggle to separate from his body. Comically majestic, the astronaut enacts a late 20th century ballet. A performance of anti-heroic stumbling, falling down, and disappearance into white light.
