Winner of best short at the 2023 International Wildlife Film Festival and AmDocs, FLIGHTPATH is a meditation on death and mourning through the eyes of a wildlife researcher. When Sarah loses her husband in a plane crash, she changes careers and dives into a project studying bird and bat mortality for a wind turbine company in the California desert. Working after dark, all alone every night for over a year, she comes to terms with her grief through her relationship with her tracking dogs, as they diligently catalog the remains of dead flying creatures.
