Plural is proud to announce the latest creative work from director Rachel Knoll, a documentary portrait of Ky Michaelson, self-anointed “Rocketman.” A rocket-builder extraordinaire since the ’60s, Michaelson was the first civilian to successfully launch an amateur rocket into space in 2004. His eclectic story–from decorated Hollywood stunt performer and coordinator to world-record-holding rocketeer–is the perfect tale for Knoll to spin. She’s known for capturing stories in the most emotionally compelling and innovative way, driven by her innate curiosity and world travels.
Knoll’s shorts have played at film festivals around the world, featured by Vimeo, Booooooom, WIRED, Vice, Nobudge, and she was one of 32 directors highlighted in SHOOT Magazine’s 2020 New Directors Showcase. She’s one of a roster of talented and eclectic directors with Twin Cities-based Plural Films.
