Blake (1969) [Short]

Canada (MIFF 1971 , Programme 8)
Director: Bill Mason

Blake is a free-thinking individual who works in the city, but lives in a cabin in the woods. Parked near the cabin is an ancient, single-engine, open-cockpit bi-plane, in which whenever the urge overtakes him, Blake takes off on jaunty voyages into the wonders and beauties of nature.

This short film mirrors not only the pleasures of flight, but also the characters of all enthusiasts who prefer to go it alone, whether among the clouds, across the wilderness, or around the world.
