The Falls

Peter Greenaway / GB, 1980

For Badlands, new filmmaker C.T.H Fransen will be talking live to her inspiration, Peter Greenaway. We are also showing the unconventional British director’s debut film The Falls, a dystopian story in 92 numbered short chapters. The audience can shout out a number to watch.

The film chosen by C.T.H. Fransen is rarely seen on a cinema screen. The fact that the young director picked this particular title for Badlands no doubt reflects her love of bold experiments.
