Watch a New Short Film on Jimi Hendrix’s Early Life [VIDEO]
A short film on Jimi Hendrix showed at this year's Sundance Film Festival, which covers the rock legend's penchant for skydiving of all things.
The piece is called Jimi Could Have Fallen from the Sky, and the creators said they wanted to explore how this skill translated to not only Jimi's music, but to his future life as a twenty-something superstar.
"This short is the unauthorized, heavily abridged, biographical visual and supersonic moment about the fact that Johnny Allen Hendrix (aka Jimi Hendrix) knew how to skydive," a synopsis reads.
"Set in Seattle where Jimi was born and raised, the film wonders aloud about what this skill meant for the life he went on to lead. Why did he retreat to the sky so quickly before all of us were ready for him to go?" it continued.
In fact, Jimi Could Have Fallen from the Sky is just one part of a larger release called "Project Five by Five," where five filmmakers were asked to create short films about Seattle, and each piece is based on one of the five human senses."
The film also uses narration to show Hendrix's musical side, as well as his personal side and friendships.
