Notes
“I am not good at expressing myself with words,” Edie Yang says. She discovered animation as a schoolgirl, drawing flip cartoons on sticky-note pads for her friends. Trying to unravel her feelings about love, she came up with a story that most viewers will find vaguely familiar. Though she wasn’t directly inspired by the myth of the Fall, she says, “When each man and woman fall in love for the first time, aren’t they Adam and Eve? The basic instincts are similar everywhere.”
