BAS JAN ADER

FALL 1 LOS ANGELES 1970

Another miniaturist in scale, but so small it’s huge. In writing the character Oliver (played by Ewan McGregor), I wrote down one day on a 5x7 card “He’s watched those Ader films and thought they were funny” – that really helped me figure out who Oliver was. And, I’ll add, if you liked Fall 1, you’ll LOVE Fall 2

If you LOVED Fall 2, you’ll want to get married to Broken Fall (geometric & organic).

Personally, Broken Fall (organic) had me at hello, for you all without patience, it starts at 2:03 - wait for it...
