The Endless Chain
2020 VIMFF Best Canadian Film Award
Director: Benjamin Jordan
Duration: 58 minutes
To redefine his concept of manhood, a paraglider pilot pushes his mind and body to the absolute limit during the most daring series of Rocky Mountain flights in history.
Since signing up for a paragliding course 14 years ago, Benjamin Jordan dreamt of completing an unpowered aerial journey, straight up the spine of the Canadian Rockies. He imagined soaring over glaciers, landing high in the alpine, bathing in turquoise waters, then flying on as he made his way over 1200 km, from Montana to Prince George, BC. But there was a catch. Nobody had ever done it before, and for one very good reason.
Join this unprecedented, aerial and mountain adventure, as you soar across BC and Alberta’s most impressive mountains. And brace yourself for the darkness, as Jordan reveals the inner struggle, mindset and motivation, required to push forward in the face of risk.
The Boy Who Flies
Director: Benjamin Jordan
Duration: 45 minutes
A young man risks everything to become Malawi’s first paraglider pilot.
Adventuring into the heart of Africa, a paraglider instigates a young man’s potentially deadly quest to release the weight of poverty, social taboos and self doubt, and take to the skies. In doing so, the traveler is confronted with unsettling truths about his own racial and cultural identity.
In a country where no one flies, two friends can inspire a nation by putting everything on the line.
