SOUTH JORDAN — A local high school teacher is getting attention for a short film he produced about the life of a man he met on his mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
Tyler Bastian produced the film, titled "Everything is Incredible," along with two other local filmmakers, Tim Skousen and Trevor Hill. The 10-minute film tells the story of Agustin, a Honduran man living in poverty who has what some would call an impossible dream.
Agustin started to build a helicopter in 1958 out of trash and discarded materials he found in his poverty-ridden village in Honduras. He was young, ambitious and thought it would take only three months. Now, 54 years later, he continues to build, realizing the work is much more difficult than he originally thought.
"I can explain the function of each part because each part took years of work," he says in the 10-minute documentary "Everything is Incredible." "For everyone, it's been a cause for mockery. Because the whole world thinks it's impossible ... that I'm just crazy."
