Looking for Exits: Conversations with a Wingsuit Artist

Kristoffer Hegnsvad, Denmark, 2015

60 min.DK/Documentary

A philosophical and poetic documentary about a female wingsuit base jumper. Wingsuit base jumping is an airborne extreme sport. The pilot takes off from high peaks above cloud level navigating back to earth close to treetops and past cliffs at speeds up to 240 kph. American Ellen Brennan is the fastest flying woman in the world and considered a true artist in the community. Residing amongst the mountains in Chamonix-Mont-Blanc, she spends her days and sometimes nights above the clouds looking for suitable cliffs from which she can soar. The wingsuit flyers refer to these cliffs as "exits".

Det Danske Filminstitut registrerer international festivaldeltagelse og priser til danske film, dog primært de titler, som Filminstituttet varetager i sin festivaldistribution, og primært i forbindelse med de festivaler, som Filminstituttet har prioriteret at samarbejde med. Registreringen af festivaldeltagelse og priser til danske film, der ikke er i festivaldistribution, foretages kun for "launch"-festivaler ifølge Filminstituttets prioriterede festivalliste.
