Falling Star portrays the mental chaos of Joseph Stalin during the last three days of his agony. The “Little Father of the Peoples” is suffering from delusions of persecution during his final moments. But is he really dead? In the Soviet limbo, the Gulag’s revenants want to settle the score.

Loic Malo began his career as a technician in a photographic laboratory in Paris. After studying Art in Cergy-Pontoise and Paris, he decided to return to photography. A few exhibitions later, he started making short films. Loic's cinematic style largely consists of archival images and photo cut-out characters.
