Join our Corona documentary!
Pick up your smartphone and start...here is more info:
Everyday life stands still. The streets are empty, squares are deserted,
schools, daycare centres, kindergartens, restaurants, cinemas - everything
is closed. Social life has come to a standstill, social contacts are
forcibly reduced. Families spend time together, the children are at home
and want to be kept busy. People are in quarantine and are not allowed to
leave the house, the apartment. How do people cope with everyday life in a
state of emergency?
Working life is also affected: Assembly lines and machines stop working,
companies struggle to survive. Some are sitting in their home offices,
others have short-time work and have to turn over every cent. In the
clinics and nursing homes the state of emergency is managed, people fight
day after day for the health and survival of others.
Corona has a firm grip on us, Corona has changed our lives.
We are two filmmakers from Diemelstadt, Germany (www.haifischbaby.de) and
would like to combine all this into one or more filmic collages and ask
you to take your mobile phone, your camera in your hand and film it for
- the empty streets and squares of your city
- how you cope with everyday life
- what gives you pleasure
What had you planned that could not take place after all? What do you
finally have time for? What do you miss the most? What gives you hope?
What frightens you? Tell us about your impressions and experiences.
Send us funny, sad, touching, outrageous, encouraging... and forward this
appeal to friends, relatives and acquaintances all over the world
