filmmaker's note
It is a hybrid 2.5D animation, which explores gender identity and our society’s need to always categorize one’s gender as either male or female. By using a playful color palette and paper constructions built in After Effects, Liu tackles a serious subject in a disarming way, and opens a dialogue without forcing a narrow view on gender
