Looking to do something worthwhile while in Washington, DC this April? Check out this new documentary film, Living In The Age Of Airplanes, opening at the Lockheed Martin IMAX Theater in the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum (NASA) on April 10th.
Living in the Age of Airplanes offers a fresh perspective on a modern-day miracle that many of us take for granted: flying. Narrated by Harrison Ford, the documentary employs spectacular nature photography and dazzling aerial shots to illuminate how airplanes have empowered a century of global connectedness our ancestors could never have imagined.Here’s a sneak peek of the movie, narrated by well-known actor, Harrison Ford.
Filmed by director Brian J. Terwilliger and his team in 18 countries over the course of several years, Living in the Age of Airplanes highlights the astonishingly rapid advancements that have led to a world in which 100,000 flights take off and land every day. During the vast majority of mankind’s 200,000-year existence, walking was the fastest means of travel. Yet today, just 175 years after the introduction of the steam engine, boarding a jet to travel thousands of miles in a matter of hours is more often viewed as an inconvenience than a world-changing technological marvel.
The film will be released on giant screen, digital, IMAX® and museum cinemas worldwide beginning on April 10, 2015. Runtime: 47 minutes / NR. For tickets and showtimes, go here: http://www.si.edu/Imax/Movie/161.
