The Texture of Falling
1 hour(s) and 15 minutes - Movie - 2018
Love is a fairytale, but only in the movies. The Texture of Falling, the first feature film from writer/director Maria Allred, traces the transformation of an artist through the indescribable highs of love and the brutal lows of heartbreak - and the truths that remain. Set in Portland, Oregon, The Texture of Falling is a poetic, multi-layered, deconstructionist, mind-bending investigation of love, art, passion, and the other complex engines of life. Visually driven and intimately shot, the film challenges the obvious assumptions of love and art. Louisa (Julie Webb), an aspiring filmmaker and a lifelong skeptic of the fairytale notions of love, finds her world is shaken by an altered state she enters into, a state she assumes is normally deemed 'falling in love.' The life-changing love affair between Louisa and renowned pianist, Luke (Patrick Green) begins to unravel as she uncovers layers of truth. A nearby romance between Sylvia (Maria Allred) and Michael (Benjamin Farmer) is mysteriously connected. And ultimately Louisa, and the audience, must determine what is real.
