Living in the Age of Airplanes, a new film from National Geographic, takes audiences on an epic journey through 18 countries and across all seven continents providing a unique perspective on how the airplane has changed the world. Narrated by Harrison Ford, it will release to theaters worldwide on April 10, 2015 in several formats, including IMax.
Shot in 95 locations around the globe from remote places like the South Pole and the Maldives to historically significant sites of ancient civilizations, Living in the Age of Airplanes is the work of acclaimed filmmaker Brian J. Terwilliger (One Six Right), and features an original score by Academy Award®-winning composer and pilot James Horner (Avatar, Titanic). The narrative weaves together the profound ways aviation has transformed our lives, connecting countries and cultures while expanding horizons and minds.
“Since we were all born into a world with airplanes, it’s hard to imagine that jet travel itself is only 60 years old, just a tick on the timeline of human history,” said Terwilliger. “Yet practically overnight, our perception of crossing continents and oceans at 500 mph has turned from fascination to frustration. I want to reignite people’s wonder for one of the most extraordinary aspects of the modern world.”
