Prompted by the Covid-19 crisis, filmmaker Gitanjali Rao painstakingly illustrated frame by frame this moving short during her time in lockdown. The piece centres on an old man who has been tragically separated from his hospitalised wife due to the pandemic. Creatively using shadows and music, the work shows us that no matter the challenges, love will always find a way in this contemporary and affecting short about connection and loss.
