"A dangerous portrait, CHUTES.DÉSERT.SYN in which I film Syn Guérin. First conceived as a study of the body in movement, of the action of falling, the film suddenly revealed itself as a portrait. The fall: a corporeal, musical, rhythmic, existential motif. A suspended dance or a physical feat? Is it a suicide or a crime? Is she fainting or being shot? What invisible force annuls the existence of this body in the world? Violence and undulation, she always gets back up, she stands up to fall again, accomplishing a circular destiny of the dead and the resurrected." -K.T., 1986
