THE MAN WHO WANTED TO FLY

Bobby Coote is determined to take flight. Even if it’s the last thing he does…

 
TMWWTF REVIEW CARD FINAL 1.2 (1).jpg
 

'The Man Who Wanted To Fly' tells the irresistible story of 80-something bachelor farmer Bobby Coote. He left school at 13 and says his reading and writing isn't great. Bobby fixes clocks and spends a lot of time in his back shed making violins from old furniture. 

But he’s never lost sight of a lifelong dream to fly. 

Capturing the wonder of one man’s dreams, The Man Who Wanted To Fly is a unique journey into a disappearing Irish border hinterland.
