Summer School

MIES TV Love Lockdown London

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. As lockdown commenced, Kirsten found herself alone in a house meant for five people. Separated from her family and friends, her coping mechanisms for loneliness branched into daily communication and virtual space.
