The sky’s their canvas,
the airplane’s their paintbrush.
For over 90 years, the Stinis have been making history in Skywriting.
This documentary takes us behind the scenes of their flying cloud factory and carries us up in the air, where high rises and dispair take turns.
For skywriting is a daily struggle against weather, time and nerves – even for the most experienced pilots.
