    Murder, sex, drugs, art, politics… sneakers hanging on telephone lines have become a powerful urban symbol, inspiring genesis theories both hilarious and sinister. In an effort to get to the truth once and for all, director Matthew Bate asked the public to help solve this mystery. Using an online call out and a phone message bank, this documentary was made entirely from donated photographs, phoned-in theories, video, vlogs and animation. The Mystery of Flying Kicks is the result of a unique digital collaboration between the filmmakers and the international public.
