“The short is a symbolic staging of the complex dance of rapprochement between a man and a woman. A mechanical ballet flitting between black and white, light and dark and countless mirroring motions—until at last contact is made and a relationship develops.”
Frei recently wrapped up the film’s festival run, which included screenings at Annecy, Hiroshima, Fantoche, DOK-Leipzig and the Krakow Film Festival. The film picked up Special Mentions at its International Premiere at AniFest and its Estonian Debut in the International Competition at Animated Dreams Festival in Tallinn. He is a graduate of HSLU (Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts), but produced Not About Us mostly during an exchange year at the Estonian Academy of Art under the mentorship of filmmakers Priit and Olga Pärn.
