Our first feature length film, The Fall was released in July 2016 to critical acclaim.
Over four years in the making, ‘The Fall’ tells the remarkable story of a South African barefoot runner, an American track and field prodigy and a journey behind the events of one of the most memorable moments in sporting history at the 1984 L.A. Olympics, which remained untold for over 30 years. The film charts the journey from rural South Africa during apartheid and the rolling hills of Southern California to the starting line of the women’s 3000 metres; uncovering a tale of betrayal and exploitation; the blurred lines between politics, media and sport; and the dedication and sacrifice required to compete at the highest level. It’s a story that split governments and divided nations but at its heart is a tale of two young women who just want to run.
"An intriguing look at the ugly, inglorious side to the Olympics." ★★★★ The Guardian
