The world is not the same since the coronavirus outbreak. Millions have been infected, hundreds of thousands died, and the final toll of Covid-19 is destined to be even higher: secondary impacts – poverty, hunger, diseases, and violence exacerbated by the pandemic – may dwarf the number of those who perish of the coronavirus itself.
Within a few weeks, life has profoundly changed for almost everybody in the world - also for filmmakers. Projects have been interrupted or cancelled altogether; funds have been frozen. But instead of waiting out the crisis in our home offices, we call upon filmmakers everywhere to join forces in narrating the impact of coronavirus on our lives: CORONOGRAPHY is a collective project that will constantly evolve, expand and grow - much alike the numbers and curves of Covid-19 that will continue to shape our lives in the weeks and months to come.
CORONOGRAPHY's interactive map shows the first wave of films created during the initial weeks of the pandemic and makes them easily accessible.
Everybody can join this project as long as your story is focused on the pandemic and its impact on our lives or is a result of the circumstances through the pandemic (e.g. online performances, co-operations etc.).
Come join us and participate!
