Check out this new fun trailer for an interesting documentary film which is called Whirlybird, which focuses on a husband-and-wife team Marika Gerrard and Zoey Tur (then known as Bob), who covered Los Angeles’ most dramatic events and transformed how breaking news would be reported forever.
The synopsis reads:
Flying high above Los Angeles in a whirling news helicopter, Marika Gerrard and Zoey Tur (known then as Bob) captured some of the city’s most epic breaking news stories. The two recount the salacious details of their career as a husband-and-wife journalist team doing whatever it took to catch an unfolding story. Their camera captured the extreme adrenaline of the culture of live news and, as a result, the strain it took on their relationship—and, ultimately, a major life transition for Zoey. A wholly unique take on the story of Los Angeles told through stunning aerial footage and remarkable home videos, Whirlybird reframes many of the city’s pivotal moments of the 1990s, including the O. J. Simpson pursuit and 92 riots.
Whirlybird is directed by Matt Yoka, a former field producer/camera op making his directorial debut. It will be released in theaters and on VOD on August 6th.
