An experimental film from Arthur Lipsett, Free Fall is an assortment of film trimmings assembled to make a wry comment on humankind in today’s world. It evokes a surrealist dream of our fall from grace into banality.

Free Fall is an interesting departure....with him actively behind the camera, gathering images.....Lipsett has this heartbreaking ability to make the invisible, visible.....this devastating alchemy.....the speed-up/slow-down of time.....the collision of sound/image.....the precision in his editing......all serve to to cut through the numbing and the noise of being alive...of being in the world of people.....
