On Wednesday, a unique short film will be showcased at the Théâtre des Variétés, documenting local photographer’s interpretation of Monaco’s intense period during the Covid pandemic.
“Poetic, moving, and disconcerting clips” make up this fascinating film created by MonacoVisions’, a Monegasque association that brings together photographers and filmmakers aged from 10 to 92 years, all united in their passion for pictures.
Titled ‘Confinement, deconfinement’, the short film screening will take place on Wednesday 20th October at 6.30pm.
From March 2020 to the present, the film explores the visions of lockdown, the Principality’s re-opening, and the subsequent return to lockdown.
It features footage of an empty, silent Monaco, artistic clips that show this most unusual time in a new light. It also has interviews with young people talking about the health crisis that directly impacted their lives, as well as original music.
