About this submission

Lonesome is a story inspired by my uncle who has stayed with my family since I was a kid.

During the pandemic, I noticed how incredibly lonely my uncle is in his life. Unmarried, in his 70s, each day is difficult for him. I noticed his mundane activities and realised those were the same activities as my grandparents' at the end of their life.

Something about old people and the loneliness at that age intrigued me.
Thus, I decided to make a film about this during the pandemic with limited resources in my home, with my uncle playing the protagonist!
