Sadie Frost explores the impact the COVID-19 lockdown has had on the mental health and wellbeing on young people.
The moving story tells of Rolf, Kelvin Bueno, Coral, Irene and Jazzy as they experience the entrapment of the COVID-19 isolation period. Exploring the vulnerability, struggle and time of anxiety felt by so many young and old alike The film depicts the internal journey. The lack of freedom. The mental health journey. The film then looks to capture the embrace of the outside world. The coming together and shared experience. And the returning hope as lockdown measures begin to ease. In the words of William Blake ‘I have conversed with the spiritual Sun. I saw him on Primrose Hill’.
The short film CONTACT was directed by Sadie Frost and written by Johnny Cooke. Conceived and filmed entirely during isolation – the story brings together a talented cast who were all isolating together or apart.
