Brief synopsis

Isolation is an anthology film and documentary by five great European filmmakers called upon to make segments about the dramatic and even revolutionary effects of the pandemic on their own countries. Each story is told from a particular point of view, but all share a common goal: to show European filmmakers united in a symbolic reunification of the Continent, of sorts in a uniquely challenging year, 2020.
In the five short films, 15 minutes each, the directors show the social, psychological and economic toll Covid-19, and the measures to contain it, took on European residents. The stories are filtered through the gazes of these premier filmmakers, who use their artistic and cinematic artistry to evoke what Europe went through in 2020.
