“Fly With You” is a documentary short about Serena Vintaloro, a young Sicilian motocross athlete who thrives when suspended between skill and risk. Vintaloro competitively races around the island and trains in the forests and hillside outside Corleone where she grew up. The film consists of observational footage of her practice and experience in competition.
This short is a preview of a longer-form documentary work that is in pre-production about Vintaloro which will address the experience of a female athlete within a male-dominated Siclian sports culture, her family’s 4th generation farm, and lastly her brother Ciccio—a passionate Appaloosa-riding acrobat.
