Whether aboard a unique homemade flying machine, piloting a modified hang-glider or leaping forth in fancy dress, there is just one aim in the Birdman competition: to fly as far as possible before plunging into the sea. This intimate and action-packed documentary hangs out with human-powered aviators before hurtling with them into the highs and nosedives of the Birdman weekend.
