Location: Bartos Screening Room
With director Ondi Timoner and Rabbi Rachel Timoner in person!
Dir. Ondi Timoner. 2022, 101 mins. Eli Timoner has had a full life. He founded Air Florida, which was the fastest–growing airline in the world in the 1970s, met with dignitaries and celebrities and earned the adoration and loyalty of his colleagues, employees, and contemporaries. He’s a beloved husband, father, and grandfather. And after suffering through worsening illness, he’d like to pass on. In this groundbreaking, extraordinarily intimate documentary by award-winning director Ondi Timoner (Dig!, We Live in Public), Eli’s family and friends gather around for one last round of stories, conversations, and laughs, and to legally assist him through his final hours. One of the most profound and inspiring works of nonfiction in recent memory, Last Flight Home paints a vibrant portrait of life in its loving, generous documentation of death.
