Flying Low is a spatio-temporal journey inside of a DC3 aeroplane, in which different historical and dream episodes are narrated from a singular voice. These old surviving aircraft from the Second World War are still used daily throughout the Colombian flatlands and jungles, and they are essential in reaching remote and inhospitable areas abandoned by the State.
A trip with unusual stories and aerial reflections that passes through different places, landscapes, visions and perspectives, until reaching the boarding and meeting of an unexpected passenger. The obsolete machine is witness to a physical and temporary suspension in the always imminent shadow of the accident. Nature and dilapidated aircraft confront their destiny, hybridize and combine. Suspension in time and resistance to the processes of modernization and progress are the ellipse of this story. Long live the DC3!
