Everybody Flies, a new documentary produced by Fact Not Fiction Films has been widely praised after its world premiere at Raindance this month.
The film, directed by Beth Moran and Tristan Loraine exposes a controversial issue affecting air travel where toxic fumes end up being circulated in plane cabins.
Produced by former British Airways pilot Tristan Loraine, Everybody Flies dives deep into the problem of toxic chemicals and engine lubricants that get mixed into the normal cabin air supply.
The film presents facts and research compiled over 18 years, highlighting an issue that is wide-spread and has the potential to cause long-term health problems for people who are regularly exposed to the chemicals.
Everybody Flies includes interviews, testimonials and eyewitness reports of toxic fume incidents, and explains the issue of air toxicity and how it is not being addressed by airlines.
Prior to the film’s premiere this month, there have been a number of legal cases brought against several airlines over the issue of toxic air, and there continues to be ongoing concern about the ramifications of air toxicity for the wider public – and how chronic conditions could be trigged by exposure to the chemicals.
At the film’s world premiere, Raindance festival founder Elliot Grove praised the filmmakers for revealing such an important issue, commending their efforts after it took them more than 4 years to make the film. After the screening the founder said: “Put this whistleblower doc at the very top of your must-see list.”
Fact Not Fiction films financed and produced the documentary, and is also behind the recently acclaimed short film Missing a Note which was theatrically distributed in the U.S. and the U.K.
