Learning to fall

Updated: Feb 6, 2020

A short film // In the beginning we lived in paradise. One day, a serpent came along. Or maybe it was just our own desire to cross the final boundary? We ate of the tree of knowledge of good and evil. And that was it. No bliss no more.


Produced as part of the Utopia Working Group Film Chain, August 2019, responding to films by Rayén Mitrovic & Alejandro Iturra; Juan Carlos Dozal Varela; and Daniel Weyand.
