Director Statement

Due to the Coronavirus and the self isolation rules, I decided to make a short film that reflected the fears of going outside. While the consequences of the film are very exaggerated, the dreamlike and nightmarish tone of the film puts the viewer in the perspective of someone who is truly afraid of the outdoors and getting sick as a result. Right now people are refusing to go outside, they fight over essential items, and they have locked themselves in a corner of isolation. The best way I could show this situation was through the power of film to reflect the fears people have and the consequences that they think would happen to them if they were to go outside, even if that meant helping someone in need.
