MIES. TV Love Lockdown Paris

With the opportunity to tell an international story, the following films focus on individual experiences of romantic and familial love in the time of a pandemic.


Whilst the scale of the emergency has been worldwide, the coping mechanisms found in each country feature humane similarities shaped by differences in cultural and legal landscapes. As an international team of filmmakers, the paradox of both limited collaborations and increased communication in these times are shown when these stories are told together. During the strictest lockdown in Paris, a young architect living in a shared apartment longed to see her boyfriend. The couple twisted the laws of a limited 1-kilometre radius by deciding to meet in a supermarket which became their new romantic space._
