Amsterdam in the Time of Corona

Spring of '20: the coronavirus has driven people into their homes, leaving the streets of Amsterdam deserted. Like a ghost we drift—or rather, since this is the Netherlands, we cycle—through squares, bridges, and shopping alleys that were once notorious for their crowds.

The coronavirus is reshaping our world to such an extent, that in the future we will refer to a pre- and post-covid-19 world. This film takes place during the transition: the Dutch government has started urging its citizens to self-isolate. Fortified in their homes, they dream of liberation day, uncertain if their former lives will recognise them.

This film can be watched in a browser or on a phone but I recommend using a VR headset for the best experience.
