Rise - The Documentary Film Project
”Even though I live in a house full of water, I have been grateful fighting for it (the helicopter).” ~ Agustin, “The Helicopter Man”
Beginning in 2007 Producer-Directors Tyler Bastian and Trevor Hill embarked on a journey to make a film that tells a story of a man Tyler met in Honduras over a decade ago. Rise is about Agustin, who is physically disabled from polio, yet has spent 50 years building a surprisingly advanced helicopter out of re-bar, bicycle parts and wood. His dream to take flight has inspired us to capture his spirit, attitude, and perspective in an emotional film about determination and the purpose of life goals.
