Flights

Director: Robert M. Herzog.
Based on an almost true but entirely surreal experience. In 1968, a college senior tries to finish his Harvard Law School Application, which would keep him from being draft bait, likely to fight in the Vietnam War. Fong and his roommates start making enormous paper airplanes, get stoned, set the planes on fire and launch them from a precarious roof. At the end of an intense, frenzied evening, a final decision propels Fong into an uncertain, potentially lethal future. Flights depicts the intense pressures of an era when ordinary rites of passage could have life and death consequences. It is a timely exploration of the impact of America at war, amidst a conflict between citizenship and morality.
