As we approach two years since the initial lockdown brought on by the COVID pandemic it’s clear that we haven’t recovered yet. People around the world reported increased feelings of loneliness, depression, and fear. For many, those feelings persist. But artists found inspiration in this. And in a lot of ways the storytelling, reflection and acknowledgement of what we’ve been through is a first step towards healing. Among those artists include director Hsuan-Yu Pan and producer Nancy Wolfe.
Today, Epicenter’s Community Manager Daniel Laplaza talks to Hsuan-Yu and Nancy about their film "ALONE/TOGETHER" which documented people learning how to navigate their new normal.
ALONE/TOGETHER is available for a sneak peak stream online until Dec 19: https://watch.showandtell.film/watch/at2021
