It’s clear that the airplane has changed how we move and travel through the world, but how much do we understand about its history and what do we take for granted? The new documentary “Living in the Age of Airplanes” explores the story of the airplane, and how the invention completely changed the way we do everything, renewing our appreciation of flight.
Narrated by Harrison Ford (“Raiders of the Lost Ark”) and featuring an original score by the late composer James Horner (“Titanic”), the film takes viewers through 18 countries across all seven continents toto illuminate how airplanes have empowered a century of global connectedness our ancestors could never have imagined. Watch an exclusive clip from the film below.
The film is directed by Brian J. Terwilliger, who worked on the visual effects team for Tim Burton’s “Big Fish” and the sci-fi movie “The Core.” He also directed the 2005 documentary “One Six Right,” which explores Southern California’s Van Nuys Airport and General Aviation.
Following its premiere at the Smithsonian National Air & Space Museum in Washington, DC, “Living in the Age of Airplanes” continued a successful run on giant screen, digital, IMAX® and museum cinemas worldwide in 2015 and 2016. It’s currently available to purchase on iTunes and Amazon, as well as available on Blu-ray and DVD.
