The pandemic forces us to see and think differently. Probably not as different as a red-tailed hawk soaring above the Niagara region – for three hours. But that’s what Canadian filmmakers believe they’ve achieved with an epically long drone journey of Niagara.

Tripping The Niagara used drones to simulate the three-hour flight of a hawk, through space and time.

“This was such a fun doc to produce, to be able to allow people to soar like a bird over some of the most magnificent scenery in Ontario,” says Mitch Azaria, Executive Producer at Good Earth Productions. “We watched hawks for days. And we believe we have come as close as possible to being a hawk while also going into the wonderful nooks and crannies of Niagara.” 

The documentary aired on TVOntario, and the broadcaster is being a little weird about letting viewers without Canadian IP addresses watch the Youtube stream. But here’s the trailer until it changes its mind.
