Two young orphaned brothers embark on a desperate odyssey to freedom and safety. With their small inheritance stitched into their clothes, they set off on an epic journey across Europe, in a heart-wrenching road story of terror, hope and survival.
Vox Motus adapts Caroline Brothers’s 2012 novel Hinterland, in a magical experience that combines unsettling themes with spellbinding images.
Flight brings you up close and intimate to this heartbreaking story in a unique, deeply individual experience. Seated in your own personal booth, you will watch the action unfold on images and models slowly moving in front of you, with speech and music conveyed through your own individual headphones.
Mixing graphic novel with exquisite diorama, Flight draws you into its fragile miniature world and allows you to contemplate its gripping story of two children lost in dangerous lands.
