On the historic background of this short film:
In the late 80s and early 90s the catchphrase from a commercial for a medical alarm and protection company called LifeCall was “I’ve fallen and I can’t get up!” Thus, almost immediately, a life-saving service for the elderly became the punchline for jokes and comedy sketches around the world.
Fast forward twenty years later and no one is joking about Denis Rovira Van Boekholt’s short film El Grifo (The Faucet)
