Ken Fero - Festival Director said: "Covid-19 has disturbed and disrupted students scattering them far and wide. Initially quite despondent about their isolation and the loss of face to face contact they have bounced back. Motivated through an online screening of Jafar Panahi's 'This Is Not A Film', a documentary made whilst under house arrest to prevent him making films, the students have been inspired to make their own documentaries. Despite being restricted Panahi created a factual story that was smuggled out and went on to Cannes, now Regent’ students have documented their own situations with films that are moving, powerful and sometimes hilarious."
Nastia - “123 Women”: “I was definitely unsure about what to film and whether it would even be interesting enough to watch, since all I did was stay at home for 7 weeks straight. Little did I know how many things would happen during lockdown, that not only affected me personally but made it into the film. I showed it all.”
Don't miss it out.
