CV19 is a short CGI documentary film, made during Britain’s first national lockdown in early summer 2020. With in-person filming impossible, the film uses creative CGI and Zoom interviews to dramatize the academic research into COVID 19. It examines how governments are reacting to the COVID pandemic. It reveals the pandemic as a crisis of governing and governments, focusing on the rights that citizens are forfeiting, and the possible consequences from failed leadership. The film looks at democracies, and the effects of digital campaigning for elections, particularly those held during the pandemic.
Directed by Samuel Bailey (UK)
