$12 General Admission
** West coast premiere! **
A European architect and a Chinese businessman are about to complete the most ambitious project of their lives – the world’s first structure for human levitation.
A dreamer by nature, Chinese businessman Quanqi Zhu decides to set up a unique installation at the hillside of Sacred Songshan mountain in China. Despite a language barrier, his collaborator is Latvian architect Austris Mailitis. As the building of the object begins, the creators themselves have to levitate between cultural differences, conventions and personal ambitions.
