How to Watch

Includes Introduction by Director Jeremy Workman.

Lily Havesh is a young woman with a unique passion… for assembling and toppling dominoes. Director Jeremy Workman follows Lily around the world as she created dozens of mind-bending moving sculptures. From executive producer Kelly Marie Tran comes this awe-inspiring SXSW prize-winner.

20-year-old Lily is a modern sensation, one of the world’s great domino artists, the term used to describe the dedicated and endlessly inventive people who design, build — and then topple over — elaborate domino structures. Lily’s temporary, in-motion creations, featured in can-you-top-this videos, have garnered over a billion views on her own YouTube channel, Havesh5. Shot over the course of 3 years, Lily Topples the World is a whimsical and fascinating look at a woman whose work is no mere novelty, but, potentially, a thriving business, and an inspiration for women and other young domino artists the world over. Featuring appearances by Jimmy Fallon, Katy Perry, Will Smith, Casey Neistat, and many more.
