Not for you to see

Two girls live side by side in a grey box, separated by a seamless glass wall. Why, or how they ended up there, doesn’t matter. Forced to confront each other and their own reflections, an invisible audience watches on as they fall into a strange sort of love.

Director Biography - Izzi Harris

Izzi Harris got into stories when she was eight years old, and rewrote Peter Pan, deciding it was much better with a girl as Peter, obviously. Since then, she’s dived into writing fiction, directed multiple short theatre pieces at the Melbourne Fringe Festival, is a published reviewer, devoted time to several webseries and stepped into the world of film and television by completing her Masters.

Frankly shocked she made it this far, she’s looking forward to living in a post-plague world and trying to make even weirder stuff come out of her head.

Director Statement

Recently, entertainment viewing spiked. We as audiences demand more and more, our fingers clicking next episode as fast as humanly possible, diving into The Bachelor and Squid Game and being fed endless possibilities of stories. Consuming more and more, and we believe we’re deserving of seeing it all. Every story is our story, everyone’s lives are shared, big brother is watching, except now we are both you and big brother.
NFYTS is not a critique of streaming platforms or those shows, but rather a look into how audiences take it all in (myself included). We
share, and expect the same from everyone else, and grow angry when access is denied.

Some moments should just be our own.

This film happened in three weeks. Before covid kicked in, I had a whole other film lined up, a whole other story. That was all scrapped, and within the month I wrote NFYTS, put a crew together, and attempted to make it work. Using the absolute minimum amount of people (eight, is the answer to that question), the normal expectation of filmmaking went out the window and everyone stepped up their game.
I would have loved a big crew, a large amount of time, but in the year 2021 that just doesn’t happen. What I got instead was a small group of people who refused to go home early, to sit down. Every day we showed up, stayed a metre and a half apart (at all times!) got our temperature checked, and then we made a movie.
