The Man who was afraid of Falling

The life of the main character Ivor turns upside down when a falling flowerpot triggers a series of paranoid reactions.

“The Man Who Was Afraid of Falling” is a graduate project of Joseph Wallace and Emmy-Rose Dade. The film tells the story of Ivor, an old pensioner who lives on the top floor of an apartment building. When the flowerpot falls from his window, he asks himself the question, “What if I fell?” And so begins a series of escapades powered by his fall paranoia.
