Fly Colt Fly: Legend of the Barefoot Bandit

Fly Colt Fly: Legend of the Barefoot Bandit details the story about a teenage boy called Colton Harris-Moore and his seemingly superhuman ability to repeatedly escape capture.

Escaping by stealing airplanes and living in the wilderness has made Colton’s criminal-riddled life into a modern day folk story.

By fusing together a documentary, graphic novel style animation, and dramatic recreations, the film contrasts the story of a real kid who fell into burglary to keep from starving with his mass media persona, The Barefoot Bandit.

While telling Colt’s larger-than-life story, this film examines the public fascination with underdog anti-heroes and how fame becomes the kiss of death for these outlaws we root for.
