They answered questions like:

What is it like to be in a relationship with a woman? Fawzia: AWESOME.

How did you make decisions about combining Motion Graphics with Live Action? Lisa: We wanted it to look and feel like it was part of the character’s environment. There is no separation between the digital world and the world you can touch in the flesh. We created an absurd reality, which when you lose control over your thoughts, life can feel very absurd and sometimes debilitating. The lines of reality and perception can get blurred and  make us feel crazy.

What is your advice to aspiring female filmmakers and performers? There is enough room for all women to reach their highest potentials and tell their stories. We have to help each other succeed. We have to redefine the narrative of what it’s really like to be a woman, lesbian, brown, etc. And we can only do that by telling our unique stories and staying true to our authentic voices.
