Governments in almost every country are responding to the outbreak of highly contagious coronavirus by instructing people to stay at home and not to meet up in person with friends, family and work colleagues. This limits transmission so health services do not become overwhelmed and also prevents many deaths.
It is also, for most, a new way of living our lives with severe restrictions on what we can do. This documentary will explore the thoughts, feelings and lives of some of those in lockdown. What have we not been able to do since the lockdown that we did previously? Are there things we have been able to do now as a result of the lockdown? How does this way of living impact on our physical and mental well-being? What have we learnt about ourselves and is our outlook on the world any different? The documentary will explore personal stories on questions like these by giving you an opportunity to explain lockdown from your perspective.
This documentary will be a combination of personal home movies and interviews that I will conduct online where I will investigate the thoughts, opinions and lifestyle adjustments individuals have had to make to adapt to social isolation.
People from all over the world are welcome to contribute their stories and opinions, which will provide a global yet personal perspective.
This is a non-profit film and all donations will go to the Big Hug Foundation which supports underprivileged children in India.
