Flipped

“Flipped” is our MA graduation film made in 2018. The film explores the absurdity of a world where the roles of kids and adults are switched. The story follows a day full of bizarrely reversed interactions, unravelling the dynamics of this relationship and how the characters adapt in such a world.

“What if kids and adults switched roles?” This was the spark that got us into the process of making this film. We both got drawn to this idea as we realised that the roles inevitably change in real life. Both of our sisters gave birth around that time so we both experienced being aunts for the first time, and got to reflect about the nature of the relationship between children and parents. Although the main idea can be a bit poignant, we realised we can still be playful with the situations that can take place in that world, and this is what got us excited to develop it further.
