Liza Johnson made In the Air in collaboration with a circus studio in her hometown of Portsmouth, Ohio. In the short film she interweaves images of the challenges of adolescence and everyday life in an economically depressed environment with scenes of circus action that approach the sublime. (22 mins., 16mm transferred to video)
