The Secret Art of Human Flight

“The film is a lovely true portrayal of the erratic nature of grief and how it profoundly clips our wings until we can fly.”- Randy Myers, SFGate

Director H.P. Mendoza IN PERSON, in conversation with Celluloid Dreams founder and producer, Tim Sika

After the death of his wife, Ben Grady (Grant Rosenmeyer) stumbles upon a self-help book by an enigmatic guru named “Mealworm” (Paul Raci), who claims to have harnessed the power to fly. The book arrives…and so does Mealworm, forcing Ben to navigate his family life, accusations of foul play, and the bizarre rituals laid before him in the hopes of healing and, just maybe, achieving flight.

Directed by H.P. Mendoza. Written by H.P. Mendoza & Jesse Orenshein. Starring Grant Rosenmeyer, Paul Raci, Lucy DeVito, Nican Robinson, Rosa Arredondo, Reina Hardesty, Maggie Grace & Sendhil Ramamurthy.
