Isolated, the short film by Charlotte Rinaldi, transports the spectator into the empty succession of days during the lockdown, characterised by a repetition of daily gestures whose sole purpose is to maintain contact with reality, through an endless routine.

The surreal collective experience that is the pandemic is expressed in the everyday life of the individual in a background of déjà vu, in a vain attempt to exorcise the moment and metabolise their own experience as it unfolds.

Loneliness, especially if forced, is a threat to the ego, which tries to resist the subconscious that can take over at any time. The fear of the virus is reflected in the psyche of the protagonist, who doubts her mental health and the ambiguous signals that surround her, ultimately projecting into her alter ego the darkest part of herself.

Director Biography - Charlotte Rinaldi

I am a 25 year old Italian actress based in Sydney Australia.

Director Statement

This is my first Short Film shot during Lockdown in Australia in 2021.
I wrote, directed, produced, acted, sound designed and edited it.
Spending so much time locked in my house because of COVID inspired me to create a short film about it.
The struggle, the boredom and delusion.
