flightpath is a cross-cultural collaboration between poet, painter & filmmaker Steven McCabe (Toronto, Canada) and painter Shirin Pilehvari (Tehran, Iran). 

The film juxtaposes McCabe's poetry with Pilehvari's artwork, enveloped within the imagery of the Canadian Niagara Escarpment, creating a synonymous geography of word and image.
