Reiko Kondo:

” MÄCHEN II  is m385902_10150665747484202_868697340_ny second experimental short. It was a kind of challenge for what I wanted to do, its a mix of silent film and animation.

I am always looking for the fusion between Asia and Europe.

With this film, the crew was French-Japanese and I used Origami and Chiyogami on the boards. ”

Born in Bahrain in 1982 and raised in the United Arab Emirates. She started her career in media as an assistant to the Executive Producer for a Reality television show in MBC, one of the largest media channels in the Middle East. Upon project completion Alia moved to the United States to pursue her Masters in Film and Digital Media in the University of Central Florida, Orlando Florida. During her stay she directed short films mostly about the Middle East in order to inform people in the United States about the reality in that part of the world. “The Bridge” is her first documentary, which was inspired by her own life in the United States as an Arab, and by the issues she faced.
