THE FBI BLEW UP MY ICE SKATES played to rave reviews at the February 2018 FEMALE Feedback Film Festival in Los Angeles.
Matthew Toffolo: What motivated you to make this film?
Sara Zia Ebrahimi: This film is based on a true story that happened to one of my (Sara’s) cousins. When she told me the story it immediately jumped out at me as being an example of something so absurd that you couldn’t script it; often real life offers the best stories. I then approached Lindsey about adapting it into an animation format and codirecting with me. I was a big fan of her previous work and loved the nostalgic early 80s aesthetic that she envisioned for the piece.
2. From the idea to the finished product, how long did it take for you to make this short?
We completed the film in a little under 12 months.
