AIR WALKERS
Carniceros del aire


Country: Spain
Year: 1992
Duration: 25'
Direction: Enrique Urdanoz

Passion for flight is increasingly seen in these Quixotes of aviation, who risk their lives in each outing and for whom the statistics say that 90% will not return with life one day. Their objective is to carry meat from the lost jungle to the other side of the Andes in Bolivia and on the return journey they pass over the snowed summits overloaded with 7,000 kilos in home-made planes that they themselves repair. Enrique Urdanoz from Pamplona uses his camera skills to capture one of these last goldsmiths of the wind: Captain Walter Ballivián. It is difficult not to fall in love with him, knowing that he has survived eight flashes of lightning and has been able to land with two failed engines. Curtis, B17, Comber 440… he prefers to talk of a fierce plane, another that is loyal and another that is noble. His testimony is key to close the journey of these air walkers as human beings capable of foreseeing death under the figure of three suspension points that will remain in the air.
