Human Performance and Limitations

Sweden, 2007 (MIFF 2007)

Director: Martin Wilderberg

This deceivingly simple and humorous documentary challenges the distanced diagnosis of a ‘very experienced and skilled' neurologist. As we fly through the air we are forced to reflect on the contemporary anxiety surrounding plane travel post 9/11.
