The Tribeca Film Festival announced earlier this month that it was moving forward with an online program which is available to registered industry delegates and media.
In an ongoing effort to support Canadian and documentary films of all lengths, I have the pleasure of introducing you to the short documentary On Falling and its director, Josephine Anderson.
The film focuses on three professional mountain bikers, who reflect on their willingness to put their bodies through extreme circumstances.
On Falling introduces us to Miranda Miller (UCI DH World Champion), Andréane Lanthier Nadeau (EWS medalist), and Brittany Phelan (Pro rider and Winter Olympic medalist).
They discuss the freedom of their sport; as well as their highs and lows on the bike and in other aspects of their lives.
Listen to Anderson speak about the film’s themes, subjects, cinematography, and more in our interview from earlier this week.
With the help of a supportive team, including cinematographer Claire Sanford, Anderson gives us an intimate portrait of these young women.
At 13 minutes in length, On Falling creates a multi-layered exploration of falling (falling down, falling in love, and so one), taking risks in life, thinking of the future, and more.
Complimented by the use of creative camera angles, polished editing and music, On Falling film gives us a look into a world and people we may not know too well, while also showing some of the similarities among us as well.
