The Afterbirth- The World According To Covid -the afterbirth

The series of videos documents the manner in which life has come to a halt, or not, in a city like New York that has always been known for its vibrancy and the hustle-bustle of activity. The lead in the narrative brings in voices from across the spectrum to explore the same premise.

From hair-dressers to construction workers to artists in the performance space - a whole array of people are spoken with to share their experience of a life in a world battling a pandemic. The videos strive to keep their tone tinged with humor and lightheartedness, hoping to keep the viewer's thoughts away from the morbidity that has come to define contemporary times.
