Life in lockdown can drive you to do things you never thought you would. For a dozen filmmakers in Miami, that meant chronicling their life at home on film.
The good, the bad and the weird footage from their months-long project premiere on July 15 as part of the Close Quarter Commissions. Oolite Arts, a Miami-based visual arts space and community resource center, commissioned the works for this micro-film festival that features short works by 12 Miami filmmakers while in quarantine.
With limited resources and only their homes and immediate surroundings as a backdrop, each moviemaker tackled of-the-moment topics in three-minute vignettes. From documenting the realities of working from home with kids and giving birth at home (!) to the hardships of unemployment, these folks kept it real as they captured the essence of our current times.
