RI Black Film Festival 2020 award-winning film "Balloon Man"

Wednesday, December 16th, 8:30 PM

Chantal Potter's "Balloon Man" is a moving documentary about Bill Costen's discovery of the transformative power of flight. The rubber met the road in the early 1970s for Bill Costen. After being drafted by the Buffalo Bills, tragedy forces him out of his dream. Saying goodbye to a career on the turf, Bill takes to the air, becoming the first African American Hot-Air Balloon Master Pilot in the world. Balloon Man is an intimate portrait of a former NFL athlete who learned how to navigate through the clouds, told through the lens of his daughter, award-winning filmmaker, Chantal Potter. Bill found freedom in flying, proving that with a bit of faith, the sky's the limit.
