On Falling

CANADA | 2020  | 13 MINUTES

In this short documentary, three women reflect on their willingness to sustain broken bones, concussions, and organ damage as professional mountain bikers. On Falling is a dreamy, unorthodox glimpse into the inner landscapes of those immersed in a subculture where falling is normal. Blending white-knuckle riding, crashes, and quiet self-examination, the film unfolds as a sensory meditation on the rush of control that comes with completely letting go. 

Featuring EWS stars Andréane Lanthier Nadeau (ALN) and Miranda Miller, plus pro rider and Olympic ski cross medallist Brittany Phelan, this short film tells the story of these three women as they muse on their experiences as professional riders, and the risks associated with the sport. Blending white-knuckle riding, crashes, and quiet self-examination, the film unfolds as a meditation on the rush of control that comes with completely letting go. 

Cast: ALN, Miranda Miller, & Brittany Phelan
