Sarah Ann

Directed by Pim Zwier
Netherlands, 2008
Documentary, Short


Sarah Ann Henley miraculously survived the 250 feet drop after jumping off the Clifton Suspension Bridge in 1885. Her Victorian skirt, inflated by the wind, acted as a parachute. A tale told by contrasting three detailed newspaper articles of that time with a sober use of image.
