All Falls Down
Three best girlfriends hang out together every day on their subway commute to and from school. It's during this daily commute that they encounter a group of boys. Relationships form, decisions are made and each person is challenged to figure out who they are and what they want from a relationship.
All Falls Down addresses decision-making by looking at the influences of friendship, communication, peer pressure, substance abuse, and self-esteem.
All Falls Down was written by Chantel Woolridge (15 years old) from Brooklyn, New York. Directed by David Koepp (Secret Window), shot by Mark Benjamin (Slam) and produced by Ezra Swerdlow (Wag the Dog).
The film is followed by a behind the scenes look at All Falls Down. It includes interviews with Chantel Woolridge, director David Koepp, the actors and Scenarios USA's co-founders. It was directed by Verena Faden, a Scenarios USA alumnus, 2002.
