Documentary Summary:- During the lockdown, I conducted a series of interviews via zoom where I investigated the thoughts and experiences of individuals in lockdown. I aimed to find out what have we been able to do as a result of the lockdown? How did this way of living impact our physical and mental well-being? What have we learnt about ourselves and is our outlook on the world any different? How have some world leaders responded to this crisis? The documentary explores personal perspectives by investigating the thoughts, opinions, and lifestyle adjustments individuals have had to make to adapt to social isolation. This documentary has a combination of personal home movies and interviews that I have conducted online where I have investigated the thoughts, opinions, and lifestyle adjustments individuals have had to make to adapt to social isolation.
This documentary is in the memory of my mother who passed away in December 2021. The premiere of the documentary raised funds for the Big Hug Foundation.
