Director’s note Volker Schlecht: When Alexander Lahl and Max Mönch had sent me their exclusive interview with Karen Lips, her com¬mitment impressed me right from the start. But then came Covid19. After months I realized that these frogs and their dying were like a »writing on the wall«. So, I decided to connect and confront these different worlds with each other. I’ve also tried to show the process of a hand drawn animation by using the afterglow of the movement as a picture in its own right, paying tribute to »Pas de deux« by Norman McLaren from 1968, the year I was born.
