This screening has reached its registration capacity.
Film Independent Members, you and a guest are invited to watch Falling in our Film Independent Presents Online Screening Room, powered by Vision Media. A special pre-recorded conversation with writer/director/actor/producer Viggo Mortensen and actor Lance Henriksen, moderated by acclaimed actor/director/producer Ed Harris, is included as part of this screening experience.
Falling follows John (Viggo Mortensen) who lives with his partner, Eric (Terry Chen), and their daughter, Mónica (Gabby Velis), in California, far from the traditional rural life he left behind years ago. John’s father, Willis (Lance Henriksen), a headstrong man from a bygone era, lives alone on the isolated farm where John grew up. Willis is in the early stages of dementia, making running the farm on his own increasingly difficult, so John brings him to stay at his California home so that he and his sister Sarah (Laura Linney) might help him find a place near them to relocate to. Unfortunately, their best intentions ultimately run up against Willis’s adamant refusal to change his way of life in the slightest. The challenge they face is to find a way to forgive each other, to accept what has happened in the past and, most importantly, what is happening to them as a family in the present. We embark on a journey from darkness to light, from rage and resentment to acceptance and hard-won grace.
Falling is available from Quiver Distribution on February 5.
