Film notes

“Bipolar” is an experimental short movie, entirely shot in split-screen. It follows the manic-depressive author Andrew Gony, through his phases of mania and depression. The split-screen is used to visualize both mental stages at the same time. On one side you can see the manic Andrew and on the other side you can see the depressive author, and how he reacts to different events in those phases. Both sides have different things to deal with, the manic Andrew has lots of energy and ideas, he doesn't require much sleep and in order to deal with his overage of energy he runs, while the depressive Andrew is suffering from insomnia, he is uncreative, non productive and in battle with his inner self. The movie was made to give the viewer a deep view into the mind of a manic-depressive person.
