Welcome to a new addition to the MAGNETFILM line-up:
HIGHFLYERS, directd by Lena Leonhardt and and produced by Peter Kuczinski (OnScreen Media) portrays the lucrative business of pigeon racing. It premiered at DOK:fest Munich this year and is Leonie's follow up to her award-winning documentary DOG SOLDIERS (2016).
Several hundred thousand Euros for a pigeon: a price many super-rich in Dubai or China are willing to pay because especially in China betting on "the little man's race horse" has become a million-dollar business. The film adopts an unusual perspective on the story of winners and losers in a game ruled by the new powers of global economy and reflects on the meaning of material wealth in the lives of different people around the world.
