Countdown to Lockdown

  Countdown to Lockdown Britons today are stocking up clothes and homeware, getting ready for their last night out and squeezing in a final gym session as the UK nosedives into a second lockdown. Today will be the 'last hurrah' for millions of Brits who, from midnight, will find their freedoms curtailed as they are told to remain indoors under draconian measures for the next four weeks. The shutters will come down on pubs, restaurants and non-essential stores by the end of the day, signalling the start of yet more swingeing restrictions.

Rising director Antonia Luxem says: “My starting point for this film was asking: how does it feel like to perform in a locked-down world? I wanted the answer to this to be something positive and dreamy, to communicate a sense of renewal.

“I was interested in exploring our longing to connect with other human beings, even when that’s practically impossible because we’re in the midst of a global pandemic… I’m fascinated by humans as a highly adaptable species that keeps finding new ways to connect when the old ways become obsolete. This is for me also one of the values of art, as a connector of people and communities.

“This film is also about renewing our relationship to space — personal spaces such as our flats or offices, but also the space offered by the city to a community of people. When there’s a sudden change of status quo, we are forced to reconsider our surroundings and form new bonds with them. That’s what our artists do here — Maxine Kwok when she plays her violin as if she were on a stage, and Marie Astrid Mence when she communicates with Maxine through the rhythm of her body.”

The two films, commissioned by Culture Mile and Brookfield Properties, have been released ahead of PLAY, a music festival hosted by Brookfield Properties, taking place at London Wall Place in May next year.
