The Falls
Introduction

Taiwan / 2021 / 129 min
Director:CHUNG Mung-Hong

In Taipei immediately after the onset of the pandemic, high schooler Xiao Jing begins home quarantine after a classmate tests positive for COVID-19. Her mother Pin-Wen is asked by her company to take a leave of absence as well and the already strained mother-daughter relationship becomes further frayed by being confined together. Then Pin-Wen is hospitalized after an incident and is diagnosed with a psychotic disorder.... The latest by CHUNG Mong-hong is his sixth feature film following the internationally successful "A Sun" (2019). "The Falls" portrays a mother and daughter rebuilding the bond between them using as a backdrop the lack of human interaction and the loss of income or employment that are COVID's ancillary menace with which we are now all quite familiar. The cinematography by the director himself magnificently captures the everyday sense of anxiety brought on by isolation as if being gradually choked off from human relationships. World premiered at the Venice Film Festival's Orizzonti section.
