Air battles

Two young men, one rich, the other middle class, are in love with the same woman. However, their priorities change soon enough: with the outbreak of the First World War, they both decide to sign up with the US Airforce.

Wings (1927) combines a romantic plot with impressive images of air battles from WWI. The movie (by William A. Wellman) won the very first Academy Award for Best Picture and Best Special Effects! Eric Sleichim and BL!NDMAN [drums] present this spectacular silent movie with a selection of percussion music from the 20th and 21st centuries, with turntables and live electronics.
