The Museum of Flying today announced the next program in their Aviation Presentation series: The making of the documentary film, “Rightfooted.” The film tells the amazing story of armless pilot Jessica Cox. The program is scheduled for Saturday, October 5th with presentations at 10:30 am and 1:30 pm in the Museum screening room.
The film is directed by Nick T. Spark who is noted for producing the Emmy Award winning documentary film “The Legend of Pancho Barnes and the Happy Bottom Riding Club.” The presentation, hosted by Nick T. Spark, will feature segments of footage from the final production. Nick will share his first-hand experiences with Jessica Cox and describe how she overcame a childhood birth defect of being born without arms.
“RIGHTFOOTED” chronicles Jessica’s amazing story of overcoming adversity and her ongoing work to change the lives of other people – disabled and “normal”. Her message is not just about disability, it’s about the importance of being different. That’s a belief she continues to share, group by group, family by family, child by child, and with your help she will reach many, many more people. Jessica Cox and Nick T. Spark’s goal with this film is to touch and inspire anyone who feels different, and create enormous change. This documentary is the incredible story of a woman who would not let even the most severe physical limitations stop her. It’s a universal film that will touch and inspire anyone who feels different for any reason.
We look forward to your attendance. Please note each presentation is limited to the first 35 attendees. You can read more about this amazing story at www.RightfootedMovie.com.
