This short film documents the stories and voices of the UK Covid-19 Lockdown.
ALONE ONCE (Filmmaker: Polly Creed)
'When lockdown ends, there will be two types of people remaining: those who were touched and those who were not." Part-poem, part-film, Alone Once is a micro-short shot in lockdown in the UK, using a camera phone.
co.vid.mp4 (Filmmaker: Gregor Petrikovic)
The short film ‘co-vid.mp4’ centres around the experiences of a character amidst the isolation of lockdown – a dancer breaking free onto the empty streets of London in a dream-like sequence, where past, present and future meet.
ISOLATION (Filmmaker: Cameron James)
A man survives the pandemic by stealing eggs from the bird that lives in his cupboard.
LONELY (Filmmaker: Claudia Collett)
Surrealist film made during the isolation measures of Covid-19. Soundtrack - "Love Eats" by Motherload ft spoken word poetry by Aiysha Humphreys.
PIECE OF CAKE: AN ODE TO THE LOCKDOWN BAKER (Filmmaker: Becki Couch)
With social distancing and staying home the 'new normal' in 2020, a new generation of home bakers were spawned, baking everything from sourdough to banana bread - so much so, they caused a global flour shortage!
SOON (Filmmaker: Mercer MacWilliams Hughes)
A returning Uni student eagerly greets the field and swing she grew up with, only to find it now frequented by local people. Yearning to share this space with a new special person, she must await a time when she can reclaim this little bit of nature.
