The sky is their canvas, the airplane their brush. For more than 90 years, the Stinis have been making history in skywriting and painting messages on the sky. In under three minutes, a skywriter can write a message of skyscraper-sized letters in the air. But the mile-long lettering vanishes after only a few minutes. This documentary takes a look behind the scenes of this flying cloud factory for the first time and takes us into the skies - between soaring and despair. Because: even for the most experienced pilots, skywriting is a daily battle against weather, time and nerves. "This awesome documentary by Munich-based director an producer Nils Otte takes you behind the scenes of this very rare art." (wunderflug.com)
