Flight Fantastic

Flight Fantastic (2014)

‘Legend and Legacy on the Flying Trapeze.’ Past and present adventures with one of the greatest Flying families in the history of the circus, The Flying Gaonas. ‘The Flight Fantastic’ explores this incredibly warm and charismatic family’s history, as they moved from the trampoline to great fame as the pinnacle act of the circus-the flying trapeze. These 4 were some of the greatest athletes and performers of their time, yet their story is relatively unknown. Their professional history is inter-cut with their present work as coaches and teachers, using trapeze as therapy and empowerment for children with cancer, or AIDS and as they give workshops across America introducing their special world to new generations with the same passion and charisma they brought to the trapeze.
