My fears


One morning in the pandemic of 2020, a woman runs through her fears of loneliness.

Our Review

Distancing and reduced social contact were the most effective measures during the early covid pandemic. But socially lonely individuals developed emotional loneliness over time. This animated film reflects the mind set of individuald at that point of time. The art design and animation are a wonderful display on the dilemma of existence in the pandemic period of time.

Director Statement The three women who took on this project, with different ages and personal situations, had been chatting via zoom about all these feelings that were going through us. The three of us went through the crudest moment in our homes, reinventing ourselves with what was around us, missing the hugs and the ties. Wondering about the future, feeling a deep nostalgia for what is human and sensitive. We want to talk about what is silenced, about what emerges in our eyes, because the masks are covering our gestures, and this also as a concern for what is happening behind those masks, and others. Coming together was also a way of saving us, of accompanying us, of breaking those silences and voids, and we believe that it will also be a way for others who encounter this gaze, or at least wonder about it.
