Covid-19 Threads is a series of short films presenting twitter posts that have appeared with the #Covid-19 tag. These shorts are presented in the same social media space in which they were originally placed by the authors, and documented here.
This film, the second in the Covid-19 Threads presents a tweet by Drew Penkala. Poignantly, in the film, the main character faces up to the fact that following his Grandpa’s death he will not be able to attend the funeral and will be forced to watch via a live stream link.
Mutiny Projects is artists Sophie Mellor and Simon Poulter and theatre producer and director, Marcus Romer. Heartfelt thanks to Drew Penkala for permission to use his material, to Raphael Sowole for voicing the film, and Sandy Nuttgens for post-production sound. This project is produced entirely on a goodwill basis, responding to the human impact of the pandemic.
