MTF West Africa Academy presents Isolation Diaries
Faced with the current COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, our Class of 2020 students were tasked with documenting and sharing their personal stories about the impact of COVID-19. Each student shot and edited a 3 minute silent mobile film made with zero budget. The result is ‘Isolation Diaries’ – 20 short films that portray the student’s fears, hopes and the realities of living in COVID times.
