Adult Children

Filmmaker: Sacha Wares

Year of production: 2021

Runtime: 16 minutes


An account of a covid lockdown as experienced by a single woman, her busy friend and her isolated mother, each holding a different perspective on the estrangement of lockdown. However, the narrative's simplicity is deceptive. None of the central characters are able to occupy the same environment physically; the drama unfolds instead over a series of phone-calls stretched across space. Physical location and chronological time bend according to who is experiencing them, just as they did in people's differing experiences of lockdown. Digital traces of trees, homes, dogs, children, families, ambulances and streets have all been brought impossibly together, conjuring a new theatrical world that in its very form expresses the fragility of our physical and social connections.
