About this submission
This film is a poem-film which I made during the first coronavirus lockdowns in the U.K. It's a story about escapism, and how fantasy can be a way to mitigate the challenges of everyday life. I found myself looking at the house across the street from me every day, and by repeating this act of observation over and over again I realised how strange it was to be able to watch the outside world but not take part in it. I made the film as a response to that idea, essentially trying to communicate the outsider's experience.
