SEATTLE -- From their home in Toronto, brothers Adam and Andrew Gray knew the story of Colton Harris-Moore needed to be told in film.
Initially what intrigued most people was that he was stealing airplanes, said Adam Gray, He's a hardened criminal on the run. He's some poor kid who's dealt with abuse. In the end, he's this mysterious character.
The Gray brothers co-directed Fly Colt Fly:The Legend of The Barefoot Bandit , a documentary featuring interviews and animation to recreate the two-year crime spree of Colton Harris-Moore.
We're never going to know what was behind that smirk that we all had to look at in the paper everyday for two years, explained Andrew Gray.
We've tried to make a film that is about the legend, brother Adam continued, It was about how he became more than just a kid.
The film premiered at the Seattle International Film Festival Thursday night, and is being screened again Saturday.
