Capsule: Falling Upward

By Joshua Beamish / MOVETHECOMPANY

Inspired by the concept “falling upward” which Richard Rohr, Founder of the Center for Action and Contemplation, describes as “the moment you’re hit with some kind of failure, illness, embarrassment, or pain that makes you reevaluate your priorities and philosophies. You transition from the first half of life: building your identity and setting goals and finding answers — to the second: embracing your darker sides, getting comfortable with ambiguity, pursuing a simplicity where there is meaning in the mundane. We return, in other words, to the person we already are, but whom we don’t know.”

Original score by Stefan Nazarevich
