When asked about “the replicas” in Plot Point, Crystal Pite says the following: “Each character has kind of a double. If we talk about the real-world characters being recognizable people, with costumes that have color in them, then their double is all white, a monochromatic palette in the costuming, plus their heads are covered, so they’re faceless. What really struck me when I started working with the replica characters was how much emotion was still in the body, even removing the facial expressions from the image.”
