Not About Us (2012) | Animated Short

Synopsis
Pared down, wordless and whimsical: 'Not About Us' 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.
