Tale of the Kite
An award-winning short film by filmmaker Michael Fallavollita. An 11-year filmmaking journey about a young test pilot who finds himself in a mysterious desert region out of contact with his airbase and with little hope of survival.
A blend of BOYHOOD and THE RIGHT STUFF, principal photography began in 2002 when lead actor Kevin DeSimone was only 10 years old.
Production wrapped in 2013 when Kevin turned 21.
The film follows his adventures from wide eyed kite flyer to full fledged jet pilot.
