THE TEXTURE OF FALLING
First show: June 15
The lives of a filmmaker, pianist, painter, and architect collide and intertwine in a multilayered tale of love, art, violence, and power dynamics that ultimately asks, what is real?
Set against the lush landscape of the Pacific Northwest, it’s a film that transcends genre and defies classification – part psychological drama and part sexual thriller. The Texture of Falling is unlike any film that you’ve ever seen. It follows Louisa (Julie Webb) as a filmmaker reeling from a recent professional dejection, who meets Luke (Patrick Green). But as Louisa and Luke’s romance blooms, a simultaneous story arises as Michael (Benjamin Farmer), a wayward architect estranged from his wife, meets Sylvia (Maria Allred), an enigmatic painter. But are these parallels merely a coincidence? Soon Michael and Sylvia embark on a verboten journey of pleasure and pain.
In The Texture of Falling, nothing is what it seems. From its opening shot to its startling climax, the film inverts all expectations. It asks what is real and what is artifice. Where do our fantasies end and our passions begin?
Written and directed by Maria Allred. 85mins. 2018. Digital HD
