On 9 March 2020, the Italian government imposed a national quarantine, restricting the movement of the population except for necessity, work, and health circumstances.

During this time, the students of ZeLIG School for Documentary were separated in their own homes, yet they were still attending online classes together.

During her online seminar, Marzia Mete proposed to tackle the whole situation with a different attitude. The idea was to turn these adverse times into a chance for our students to reflect and react to the events in a creative way, with an open cinematographic approach. "Remotely / Related" is the collection of the realised shorts, films that focus on going deeper in the emotions arising from the lockdown, telling the unfolding events from their own particular perspective.

I stay (not) at home

by Kyrylo Naumko


What do you do if you came to Italy to study and ended up locked in a small apartment in the heart of the world pandemic? Shoot a movie about it!
Inside my apartment there are me and my girlfriend. We try to keep leading an ordinary life, but from time to time it is still influenced by the external.
The film is my reflections on what and how has changed in our lives during this time and how we deal with it.

Io come voi (Me As You)

by Lilian Sassanelli, Angela Disanto

It’s a film about a young woman observing her neighbours from the balcony during the lockdown due to COVID-19. As she starts to follow their habits with a camera, she comes up with the idea of filming also herself. Observing the others, looking for some life outside, she is searching for a way to understand better the life in herself.

Cara Berlino

by Matilde Ramini

Coming back from Berlin four years later I have filmed the flow of the landscape. The four walls I have found on my arrival turned into a space for a personal reflection on leaving and staying.

A normal day

by Lorenzo Covi

A normal day, at a not so normal time.
A look at the lockdown with the eyes of someone who, closed at home, can truly be himself, but that at the same time reflects about some of the contradictions in the historical moment he’s living.

A Grand Bizarre of what is on the internet; after a rigorous statistical search comes out a non-rigorous empirical work. A compilation of viral videos that delighted the editor’s sister but not the granny…

IN THE GARDEN nr. 1: out of the nest

by Leonardo Minati

In the middle of this pandemic, a minor health problem forced me to move back from the town to the country, to my parents’ house. There I realized that all those things (the worldwide outbreak and my return to my parents) were happening in the middle of spring. I stopped paying attention to the news and I started collecting little pictures and sounds from our garden. This small film is the result of my observation.

Il ballo delle ombre

by Alessandra Bassi

During the lockdown due to Covid-19 a girl is astonished at how her house suddenly seems to be shrouded in immobility and loneliness.
In the muffled atmosphere of the village where she lives, the days are one similar to each other but the passing of hours does not expand: the night arrives punctually and somehow unexpected. Without music or voices, the animated twittering and the noises of everyday life are the only rhythms of time, which flows unchanged.
The camera stays in a room looking for movement in the stillness.

by Chiara Capo

Time as an endless hiccup, it expands, it contracts. Despite the global surface seems freeze, apparently suspended, the life of four roommates keeps floating among uncertainties and folly.

Questi giorni

by Marco Di Liello

Una mattina come tante, una coppia, due cani e una tv.
In casa, l'immobilità della vita è scandita da gesti, suoni, attese, pasti repentini.
Fuori campo un lavoro indispensabile.
Al calar del sole ci si ritrova.

In the building next to the apartment of 3 guys, a reception center deals with the Coronavirus emergency in its own way. Two things make the realities extremely similar: quarantine and a foosball table.

Dalla finestra
