March 31, 2018 Free Falling Short Film Screening and Fundraiser at Independent Living Resources, Portland Oregon

John Fleming, known as “Blind John” among skydivers, jumped out of a perfectly good airplane over 1900 times. More than 1200 of those jumps were made after he lost his sight — he was the first known skydiver to develop a method to jump solo while blind.

Now, we are on a mission to tell his story. Join us to see the short film Free Falling: The Story of John Fleming, Thrill-seeker, and learn how you can help bring John’s story to the big screen in a full-length documentary. If you’ve ever wanted to help produce a film — this is your chance!

Join us to:

  • Meet our team
  • Learn more about John Fleming from his family and friends
  • Find out how you can assist with producing this movie

Free! Open to the public.

Showtimes at 7 pm and 8 pm

Venue: Independent Living Resources of Portland Oregon, 1839 NE Couch St, Portland, Oregon 97232
