If on a summers day a tinkerer...

An ode to the imagination and obsession (mixed with sad irony) that inspired humans to pursue aviation. The film pulls heavily from material acquired through the Prelinger Archives (including a degraded 16mm biopic of Leonardo Da Vinci), and borrows it’s title from a similarly fractured narrative, If on a winter’s night a traveler… by Italo Calvino.
