Closed borders, lockdowns and restrictions have separated us during the pandemic. For a long time, loneliness and the desire for human contact have been all too familiar feelings. We have been isolated, each in our own space. With the vaccine roll-out, we are starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel. It is time to transcend borders, to process the experience together and look ahead.
You are invited to connect with others on an interactive global journey into the Corona era. We have recorded more than 300 compelling stories, together with co-creators from all over the world. They are intimate windows into human life and how it changes over time as a result of external circumstances.
‘Connections – No One Is an Island’ is an interactive film, experienced online. You become part of a group of 9 people, interacting collectively with the videos and shaping the journey together, while you move through the emotional stages of the pandemic.
‘Connections – No One Is an Island’ can be experienced as online screening events or in physical venues. The work presented at CPH:DOX is the first digital demo and is evolving each time it is presented.
April 24, 9.30 p.m CET / Premiere followed by a Q&A / 60 min
