12:00PM DESTINED TO FLY

“Destined To Fly” is a forty-one minute documentary film about Cole Palen, the founder of the Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome. Cole’s passion for building and repairing antique airplanes transcends multiple generations, forging connections through childhood experience, memory, and storytelling. Founded in 1958, Old Rhinebeck was one of the first airfields dedicated to antique airplane restoration. But the community brought together by the romantic era of flight lost their hero after Cole Palen’s death in 1993. More than twenty years later, Cole’s own childhood dream is sustained by the now grown children who were touched at an early age by Cole’s passion and vision.

1:00 PM RARE IN COMMON

Rare in Common shares the stories of five families—their stuggles, their hopes, and their strength—as they confront the challenges of living life with rare disease. And while their conditions are all different, their struggles in a system that’s not built for them are issues we can all relate to.

In fact, they are simply regular people, who happen to be experts on a grave threat to our shared future. They’re climate scientists!
