DAVID ONDAATJE - Films - Icarus

(filmed and directed by david ondaatje)

A cinematic journey from above while flyfishing in Montana, British Columbia, and Mexico. According to the Greek myth, Icarus, upon obtaining his freedom, soared joyfully above the earth using wax wings before flying too close to the sun... similar to the filmaker's new-found delight in capturing the beauty of flyfishing from the sky.
