“Flying Lessons” follows two estranged sisters forced together by their mother’s sudden death: Beatrice, an autistic high schooler who wants to learn to fly, and Talia, a queer musician with no interest in teaching her.
Starring and co-written by the autistic actress the story is based on, the film showcases a unique and underrepresented perspective on death and grief.
