In modern history, humanity has never experienced shared fears in their houses. We decided to arrange an international short film festival named “One-Minute” Quarantine to examine the general creativity of society in limitation and lack of facilities, from nothing and from the least; So pick your cellphone up and record 01:00 minute video.
One-minute video could be the horrible aspect of a mother whose child is part of the medical staff or a lover Being away from him/her beloved and not being able to accompany him/her or maybe an empty table for a family worried about their parents’ jobs.
One-minute quarantine could be the music instruments being played on the balcony of houses to resist death, they seem to be saying, "We're still alive. Look." The quarantine re-enacted the feelings of homemade bread smell in our nostalgic memory. Video calls became our connecting line, and sometimes singing a song together to forget. One-minute quarantine can make us close to God
Here are different parts of the festival:
*Quarantine / life / love / religion.
* Quarantine / family / children
* Quarantine / psyche / family and domestic violence / experience of being alone / Self-discovery
