A conversation with filmmaker Juan Cabral, director of Two/One, featured in the International Competition of the 2019 International Film Festival and Awards Macao. Cabral shares his thoughts about some of the themes of the movie, including loneliness, connection. Given these heavy themes, we ask him whether he has an interest in philosophy. He also talks about the experience of working on his first feature and since this is the second interview FRED does with the film, following its premiere earlier this year at the Tribeca Film Festival, we ask him what life after it has been.

Two/One: Kaden is a world-class ski jumper in Whistler, Canada, unexpectedly presented with the chance of reconnecting with his teenage sweetheart. Khai is a corporate executive in Shanghai, China, faced with the fact that the girl he fantasises about on the internet has just started working in his office. The two men go about their lives, without knowing that they are connected. When one sleeps, the other is awake. They dream each other. They are, in some strange way, the same person. They should never meet, but they are destined to do so.
