SYNOPSIS

While working in Strasbourg on her latest animated short, Ma Weijia has to rush back to China when France goes under lockdown. Upon her arrival, another lockdown awaits her. Fourteen days in a hotel, like a bear in its cave. From the surreal flight to her quarantine, the director recounts this experience through a filmed diary filled with humor, inventiveness, and a touch of romantic comedy.​

 

PROGRAM NOTE

The director left for France to work on an animation film when France was suddenly under lockdown due to COVID-19. This filmed diary traces the moments and her emotions during the hectic days of the pandemic. The film portrays the materiality of time, but the way her experience is presented and the form of storytelling chosen are very diverse and interesting. Finally, when her quarantine ended, the scene capturing the regular daily lives outside and a song that she learned during the quarantine gives a sense of difference and fondness at the same time.
