Where the Sky Begins (Series) (1974-1975)

Aka: Les faucheurs de marguerites

Jeune homme oisif et argenté, Edouard Dabert (Bruno Pradal) découvre, à l'occasion d'un séjour en Allemagne, les tentatives de vol d'un autre pionnier des airs, Otto Lilienthal. Rentré en France, il se lance dans l'aventure. En cette fin de XIXème siècle, la concurrence est acharnée entre tous ces hommes qui veulent être les premiers à voler.

This series of half-hour episodes dramatized the development of flight. Filmed in part in Quebec City, directed by Marcel Camus, it was a co-production of ORTF, Bavaria Films, Telcia Films, and Radio-Canada. The English version was produced by Cinelume Productions, and aired on the CBC English network in 1976.
