"QUARANTINE - SHORT FILM"

Type: Documentary - Artistic

Two young artists from Barcelona: Vanessa Roca (photographer, 1990) and Diana Glatz (writer, 1995), present Quarantine, an autobiographical story of three women who lived together the confinement in a shared flat in Barcelona and who, in one way or another, had to make do in order to survive not only the pandemic, but also themselves.

 

It is shot with a classic Hi8 home video camera and with a markedly homemade aesthetic, as the circumstances dictated. It is a morning of looking out the window, an afternoon of tarot reading and an evening of wine; a record of everyday scenes that, without direction or text, made lighter the period of pause, silence and isolation in which we were immersed from one day to the next.

"SURVIVING NEW YORK"

Type: Documentary

In an effort to use her tragic story as a catalyst for change, Ana Wagner began advocating for children’s civil rights in New York State. Despite the demands of motherhood, the demands of marriage, cultural oppression, and the haunting memory of her devastating experience, Ana is doing what she once wasn’t able to as a child - fight.

Directed by: MEGAN MILLER

Director's Note

Two years after the film's completion in 2017, the Child Victims Act passed in January 2019 after Democrats finally claimed the New York Senate majority. Victims of childhood sexual abuse in New York state can now bring criminal charges against their alleged attacker until age 28, and file a civil suit until age 55 (previously, the age has been 23 for both accounts). The law also provided a 'look-back-window" for one year, giving survivors an opportunity to revive expired claims under the previous statute. This look-back-window is no longer in effect.
