“We’re a primate species with an unbelievable need for violence” JG.Ballard

Falling from Heights is an experiment, which was set to perform dying scenes in public, events that are mostly produced within the confines of safe cinematic sets. During the filming, the most intriguing aspect has become a growing public interest in these actions. It seemed that onlookers were excited by the morbid, horror-evoking sensations, where a tragic accident becomes a desirable event, where enthusiastic spectators queued to experience someone else’s misfortune.
