Additional Information

The Fall (2006), Dir.: Tarsem Singh, 117 min.

This adventure fantasy filmed in more than 20 countries begins in a hospital on the outskirts of 1915 Los Angeles, where an injured stuntman begins to tell a fellow patient—a little girl with a broken arm—an improvised story of five mythical heroes.

Part of the summer series: Stepwells on the Silver Screen
Located in the northern Indian state of Rajasthan, a stepwell known as Chand Baori—with 3,500 steps zigzagging down 13 stories—is perhaps the most recognizable of all stepwells. Now maintained by the Archaeological Survey of India, the thousand-year-old site has been featured in several major motion pictures. This summer’s film series includes a Bollywood fantasy, a Hollywood film by an Indian director, and a DC Comics blockbuster.
