Festival start: 10 July 2020      Festival end: 27 August 2020

This time of pandemic has turned us upside down with everything we have had to learn to overcome.

We are involved in a thousand tasks around the house: constantly checking the cell phone, complying with teleworking and remote study. In the end we end up exhausted with no desire to do anything other than think about what will come tomorrow.

The idea of ​​this project is born from a filmed correspondence between friends, which allowed us, from a new sensibility, to tell us about our daily experiences and what we have felt during our quarantine.

This experience of creation from intimacy, without pretenses or unnecessary artifices, but from the feeling and the desire to share, helped to discover the poetic potential of the surroundings that surround us.

The correspondences are based on the exchange of ideas that allows us to observe the world of the other. They allow us to discover the geographical universe that we inhabit and that unites us when we are motivated to share these feelings.

Filmed Correspondences is a relatively new format, which allows filmmakers or artists to tell their way of looking at the world in a very traditional way.
