Like many people I love to travel and have done so before I could even walk. What I didn’t know was how dangerous it is to fly! I didn’t even question if flying was safe, I just assumed it was. Would large airline companies really put us at risk and cover up the dangers we face, as well as the consequences of those dangers? Tristan Lorraine’s new documentary Everybody Flies answers all these questions and reveals the air we breathe on aircraft is passed through the toxic engine oil.
This eye opening film divulges the plethora of airline staff who have been signed off with ill health and not surprisingly, that airlines have tried to cover this up. Tristan himself is a a former airline captain, who painstakingly over many years has investigated this horrific issue.
What’s crazy is there is a solution to this problem, although perhaps it too costly for the airlines to want to put in place. Without giving anymore away, if you have even flown inside an aircraft in your life you MUST watch this important documentary.
After a career as an Airline Captain for British Airways, Tristan Loraine re-trained as a Director / Producer at the National Film and Television School (NFTS) and established his award-winning production banner Fact Not Fiction Films in November 2006. Tristan’s years of research into the film Everybody Flies’ surrounding issue earned him a British Citizen Award for services to industry, which he was awarded in 2015 at the House of Lords (UK Parliament). He is also the Spokesperson for the leading global organisation dealing with the issue of contaminated air: The Global Cabin Air Quality Executive (GCAQE).
Co-director Beth Moran (Missing a Note) also trained at the National Film and Television School (NFTS) in London. With a background mainly in documentaries, Beth has worked on a number of award-winning films internationally including Lucy: Breaking the Silence about mental health in young people, The Frontier: Ukraine about the pro-Russian unrest in Ukraine and Raindance-nominated short film Ellston Bay.
