The Aviatrix -- now on YouTube  

Posted by Denis Haack in , ,


At the 2008 Rochester L'Abri Conference, in a workshop titled, "Inside the World of Movies," I interviewed film director Toddy Burton and showed her short film The Aviatrix. The conversation that developed was so lively it spilled over into the dinner period that followed. Now, after nearly a year of playing at international film festivals, The Aviatrix is finally available for viewing online through The YouTube Screening Room, a unique platform that programs short films from around the world.


It's the story of a girl, a galaxy, and the most surprising battle with cancer you've ever seen.  The Aviatrix is a short film that uses comedy and drama to explore the trials of brain tumors, lawn maintenance, and the far reaching borders of the human spirit. It's worth watching, discussing, and telling friends that it is now available.

Burton calls The Aviatrix "an intergalactic fantasy adventure cancer comedy romance." It's a delightful, creative, subversive short film by a young film director whose name we will someday see on the big screen.
