The movie called simply “BASE,” starring the late Alexander Polli, is out now on iTunes for a tenner (I’m told that’s what British people call £10, or $13.11, which doesn’t have quite the ring to it).
The plot – because it is a scripted drama, not a documentary or reality show:
JC (Alexander Polli) is a B.A.S.E. jumper, a global playboy who lives his life quite literally on the edge, pursuing man’s greatest dream – to fly. When a jump goes wrong, that dream is violently shattered. Haunted by the event, JC is drawn to his best friend’s lover, ASH (Julie Dray), as he pushes himself harder than ever before – flying lower, closer, faster and recording every moment on film. Soon JC’s dark descent threatens not only his own life, but the lives of all those around him. ‘BASE’ follows a man over the edge and watches him fall.
