Point of No Return
Soaring at 28,000 feet without a drop of fuel, nothing is predictable: not the weather, not the technology, and certainly not the fate of a man, alone for five days in a fragile, first-of-its-kind aircraft with nothing but ocean below. Point of No Return takes you behind the headlines of the first solar-powered flight around the world, where two courageous pilots take turns battling nature, their own crew, and sometimes logic itself, to achieve the impossible. Their aim is not just to make history, but to inspire a revolution.
Co-directors Quinn Kanaly and Noel Dockstader will join moderator Chris Jenkins (Film and Media Studies, UCSB) for a post-screening discussion.
