  • The Flight of the Gossamer Condor

    1978. USA. Directed by Ben Shedd. Chronicling Paul MacCready’s historic invention, construction, and ultimately successful test of the first human-powered flying machine, Shedd’s film captures the hard work, adventurous spirit, and creative thinking that went into making an impossible dream into a scientific reality. Preserved by Academy Film Archive. 27 min.

  • The Horse with the Flying Tail

    1960. USA. Directed by Larry Lansburgh. It’s the story of one horse’s journey to the big time. “Nautical” the golden palomino was born into poverty and put to work at a variety of jobs with no guarantee that he would be treated well. But the horse is a natural-born jumper, and fate finally steps in to give him a chance at competing in what he loves best: soaring over hurdles. 48 min.
