Interview with Filmmaker Sarah Fischer (THE IDENTITY PAS DE DEUX)

Matthew Toffolo's Summary

THE IDENTITY PAS DE DEUX was the winner of BEST FILM at the June 2020 Experimental Film Festival.

Matthew Toffolo: What motivated you to make this film?

Sarah Fischer: I have always struggled with with my gender identity, with balancing who I felt like with who I was supposed to be with what social gender roles were expecting from me. This short, and this dance, felt like the right format to express that struggle, and have our protagonist emerge with a better understanding of self.

2. From the idea to the finished product, how long did it take for you to make this short?

-We were working on a bit of a tight timeline because we had hoped to use the film as a proof-of-concept to raise funds for a series of short films promoting diverse storytelling. It probably took about 9 months from first draft to final film.
