Lockdown trilogy of mine - Stage II: Claustrophobia or Everbody is herodoc
Short film, by Rachele Studer, Italy, 2021.
A quarantined writer (who can no longer write) seems to accept the government measures, even if they deprive him of his freedom, privacy, strenght, joy and, most of all, his job. So it happens that at some point he can't breathe anymore. Strange sensations perceived during the quarantine. We're all the same one person, behind a mask. The short-movie has been interely realized at distance, all the people in the places where they were spending the quarantine period...
