Director Statement

The idea of The Flip Side's story came to me as I wondered,
'what effect can trivial incidents have on our lives?' 'How far can the butterfly effect reach?'.
An event in the little girls' childhood will trigger a deep obsession and lead to a clod revenge. The heart of this
obsession is the search for 'identity'
, with a feeling of one life for two.
Challenging their sense of worthiness as individuals, their strong resemblance will determine the protagonists'
destiny and give birth to a violent rivalry.
I have witnessed competition between actors in the film industry, but what struck me the most was an even fiercer
rivalry between women.
This script explores identity in its narcissistic aspect. Scarlett is mesmerized by her own 'fabricated' image and
Nowadays, social networks have radically changed our perception of reality and given birth to a frantic
race to create an 'idealized version of ourselves'
, a so-called 'enhanced version of reality'.
So comes the question: who is the real Scarlett? Without her glory and her celebrity mask, who is she?
Is she any different from her lookalike? If love moves mountains, what would the cold revenge of a woman do?
I like to explore the themes of jealousy and revenge with a reference to Cain & Abel.
Nevertheless, I insisted that the two characters weren't twin sisters. In that sense, I wanted to broaden the
possibility of that story applying to anyone should they ever meet their doppelganger like John in Daphné Du Maurier's thriller novel The Scapegoat.
