Here are the most exciting stories, documentaries and short films going to Sundance this year.
Matt Yoka’s documentary “Whirlybird” focuses on the life of transgender helicopter pilot and reporter Zoe Tur. Tur is a pioneer in helicopter reporting and has recorded more than 10,000 flight hours for news events in Los Angeles from the 1992 riots to the O.J. ranged. Simpson Ford Bronco chase from 1994. The film tells the story of Tur’s gender change and at the same time captures the identity and evolution of Los Angeles, seen from Tur’s unique sky viewpoint. The film combines intimate interviews with Tur and people they know with some of the most fascinating aerial photography of Los Angeles that has been videotaped.
