How will you feel “When All of This is Over…”? This series of five beautiful poetry films by international poets and diverse visual artists explore visions of life in a post-pandemic world.

Filmmaker One6th Animation Studio say:

“Our film depicts two settings – firstly, the interior of a home office and in the distance, a new day is breaking in the city. Whilst both these spaces are fictional, they reinforce a point of view we’ve all shared over the past year. Having spent a great deal of time indoors, we aimed to convey feelings of claustrophobia but with an element of hope on the horizon.

For us, Anthony’s poem deals with themes of lockdown and more broadly, life and mortality. In the film, Anthony’s character struggles with the diary and its menacing bookmark, which represents both lockdown and the past. Despite his struggles, Anthony adapts and evolves, ultimately sacrificing and letting go of a piece of himself in order to move forward. We hope this will resonate with audiences, who themselves have had to make sacrifices of their own over the past year.”
