Summary
  • "The falls" was shot as a pseudo-documentary and details 92 case histories of people who have been affected by the VUE (Violent Unknown Event) - a mysterious, apocalyptic phenomenon related to birds, flying, and bizarre invented langauges. "Vertical features remake" a group of self-important academics argue about the work of Tulse Luper
  • The content of the six playful shorts features a wide variety of themes - from the condensed, wry history of 37 people who have fallen to their deaths from windows ("Windows"), to a sequence of 92 maps to guide a dead ornithologist on his way into the afterlife ("A walk through H")
