The Kid Should See This

If You Fall, an animated short about taking risks

A cautious eight-year-old Lila struggles to find her balance while riding her bicycle in this endearing, brightly-coloured animation about family love and support.

If You Fall was written and directed by Vancouver-based animation designer Tisha Deb Pillai. A story about taking risks and “giving the daunting task a try,” the short is influenced by her own childhood in a familly in which her mother worked and her father was the primary caregiver.

Next: Détour, an iPhone film by Michel Gondry. Plus: More families, more mothers, more fathers, and more bicycles.
