LEAVING THE EARTH
LEAVING THE EARTH
A plane with 297 passengers is out of control. One of the engines goes dead and the steering mechanism does not work. No one knows what to do, except Denny Fitch who happens to be on board. He manages to navigate the plane by using the thrust controls and forces it down to a crash landing. 111 people die in the crash, but thanks to Denny Fitch 186 passengers survive. Could he have saved more passengers if he had done things differently? He is haunted by the dream of the perfect landing.

Director
Errol Morris has studied philosophy and has worked as a private detective. He made film history with his documentary “The Thin Blue Line”, which saved an innocent man from the death penalty. His other films include: “Mr. Death”, “Fast, Cheap and Out of Control”, “A Brief History of Time”, “Vernon, Florida” and “Gates of Heaven”. We screened the first season of First Person at the 2000 Oslo International Filmfestival. This year we present six new films in this series.
