Made by a dedicated frisbee player himself, the doc THE INVISIBLE STRING by Jan Bäss is a comprehensive history of Frisbee - from disc design to different playing styles. As in many sports, Frisbee aficionados feel a deep, almost spiritual tie their sport, even admitting to a love of the disc. Sport indeed brings people together. Whether laid back tossing in the park or hardcore Ultimate between pro teams - Frisbee is for lovers. The documentary begins with the Frisbee Pie Bakery in Connecticut, where it all began in 1871. Children in the town used to play a game, throwing empty metal pie plates to one another. The World Frisbee Championships in the seventies were held in the legendary Rose Bowl. The Frisbee game shaped a whole generation.
