Big Blue Sky is a feature length documentary about hang gliding, the first Extreme Sport, and how it started.

8:00 p.m. Lecture
Watch and listen as Bill Liscomb, a pioneer of modern hang gliding, shares the story of this extreme sport’s birth along the coast of California in the 1970s.  Liscomb flew his homemade designs at the early meets and will describe both the technology and the culture of hang gliding.  Liscomb, an accomplished film producer and musician, uses vintage film and music to capture it all in his documentary Big Blue Sky, which will precede his lecture.
