Going Down is a whimsical dance film set in the 80's that follows the story of a lonely office clerk who spins a wild fantasy upon a chance encounter in an elevator.

words from the filmmaker

This film is a small light made in a darker time. Short, sweet, and simple, this film highlights our ability to escape into our dreamland in order to make the world a bit more bearable. A film for the hopeless romantics and the daydreamers.

why we love this film

When rom com meets dance film. A delightful film and beautiful duet that will make you believe in love-at-first-sight again
