Artistry in the Air: The Story of the Younkin Family
Following legendary aviator Matt Younkin and his family’s journey, documentary Artistry in the Air traces the many joys and hardships experienced throughout the years.
“This film is making its debut at EAA AirVenture 2021, and I couldn’t be more pleased,” filmmaker Beth Powell Lewis said. Matt Younkin will help introduce the film on Sunday night.
Flying Boat, produced and directed by Dirk Braun, is the breakout film for Red Mtn Productions from Colorado. Centered on the Grumman Albatross, Flying Boat is a story about freedom, aspiration, and the synergy of man and machine, as told by 10 different mechanics and pilots.
According to a press release by Red Mtn Productions, “the film underscores the importance of preserving the flying boat history for future generations.” Signed, framed posters will be on sale, with proceeds being donated to the Pan Am Museum Foundation, Wittman Regional Airport, and Aspen Flight Academy.
The documentary Red Horizon highlights the efforts of a group of pilots to encourage young Black people to pursue aviation at Tuskegee University.
“We feel like the Tuskegee Airmen are worthy of a movement, not a monument,” producer Henry Cobbs said. “The real legacy for them should be young people learning how to fly and learning the history of the Tuskegee Airmen through that lens.”
These students work to continue that legacy on the same grounds the Tuskegee Airmen trained on, fighting prejudice and racism while learning in the same location as their predecessors.
