"An unbelievably personal, profoundly bittersweet, and occasionally disquieting documentary." - Carlos Aguilar, RogerEbert.com
"A moving, boundlessly humane documentary." - Ben Kenigsberg, New York Times
"Profound in its simplicity, wrenching in its honesty, and beautiful in its humanity." - Elizabeth Weitzman, TheWrap
Thursday, November 3 at 8pm | On an unremarkable suburban street, we find 92-year-old Eli Timoner, who founded Air Florida, the fastest growing airline in the world in the 1970s. During his final days, we discover an extraordinary life, one filled with wild achievements, tragic loss and, above all, the enduring love of his family. With her latest film, Ondi Timoner, Eli’s daughter and two-time winner of the Sundance Film Festival’s Documentary Grand Jury Prize (DIG!, WE LIVE IN PUBLIC), has created her most personal, verité film yet - a moving and honest conversation with mortality. LAST FLIGHT HOME takes audiences on an unforgettable ride through Eli Timoner’s life, illustrating a modern-day success story built on the power of human connection. As the Timoners open up their lives to offer an enlightening view of a universal experience, they demonstrate the grace, connection - and joy - that can emerge from embracing death.
