This is a 2003 documentary about dream machines of Leonardo da Vinci.
In this two-part film, a team of world-class experts attemp to build a full-scale model from two of his ambitious designs.
The first machine is a giant crossbow with arms nealy 70 feet across, which would have been used to launch cannon balls with deadly accuracy.
The second is a glider that predated the earliest flight by 500 years.
The problem is that much of Leonaaldo's work has been lost, vandalized, or deliberately destroyed over the years.
Will they be able to finish their task?
It is a fascinating, inspirational and fantastic documentary you should NOT miss.
