FREEDOM & FEAR
SHORT FILM AWARD
Sita Ziegler-Robert, Amalia Ziegler
The world in 2025. Strict restrictions and quarantine measures still apply. The global economy plunged into a deep crisis from which it has not yet recovered. The silent fear of the COVID-19 virus and state control are widespread. A mother and her daughter live in silent fear of a virus and the oppression, the invisible control that is supposed to protect our society. Everyday life has changed. He has become calm, characterized by simple tasks and the urge to survive. In these circumstances, the mother tries to complete a work whose completion becomes the symbol of our time. It is a serious decision that our society has to face: fear or freedom. "This film was created during global quarantine efforts to contain the COVID-19 pandemic."
