Quint At The Fridge Film Screenings - The Fall

A new collaboration between design studio Quint and music agency The Frdige called Quint @ The Fridge starts this month showcasing some of the finest art house, film noir, world and independent cinema. The screenings will take place at The Fridge in Dubai. They start this Saturday, 6th August with the screening of The Fall by Tarsem Singh.

The film is a visual feast shot (see more photos added after the trailer) in 18 countries over a period of four years. There are no digital effects in this film, what you see exists in the real world.

There are no computer effects. It’s just the kind of visual stuff like what I was doing all the time with commercials, where it looks like more than it is. In all these places I had filmed over at least 17 years, I told the people, this is a paid job, its a commercial, but I’ll come back one day and make this place look magical.  From an interview with with Roger Ebert.

Award-winning music video,commercial and film director Tarsem Singh (The Cell) creates a moving and seamless blending of mundane life in a 1915 Los Angeles hospital with a visually sumptuous fantasy world of exotic bandits, evil tyrants, dream-like palaces and breathtaking landscapes.

Shot on location in 18 countries around the world, The Fall stars Golden Globe nominated actor Lee Pace (Pushing Daisies, Infamous, Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day) and Justine Waddell (Mansfield Park, Chaos) and features a breakthrough performance by first-time Romanian child actress Catinca Untaru.
