Parkour is the epitome of panache. Like bungee-jumping, BASE jumping, and all those other extreme sports where men make suicidal leaps to prove their worth, parkour (also known as free-running) emboldens, it makes the heart soar. The name itself is derived from parcours du combatant, the obstacle course French army cadets are required to master as part of basic training. In parkour, the city is an obstacle course, which must be overcome by the most efficient means. Practitioners of parkour are known as traceurs. They’re young and daring, and they scale walls like cats. The short film, Choose Not To Fall (winner of “Best Filminute” at the Filminute 2010 International Film Festival) is about Daniel Ilabaca, traceur par excellence; a Nike-wearing Cyrano de Bergerac.
