A Devised Film Project
In March of 2020, the world changed with a global pandemic. It closed schools and isolated us in our homes, creating fear and distrust. The world became uncertain. Social unrest and political divides disconnected us and drove us apart. As one Sehome teen said, “Right as we were preparing to enter the world, the floor fell away. We jumped in the air, and now we don’t know where we are going to land.” We don’t know the future.
And yet, even in our physical distancing, we connect in a way unlike anything else in human history. Social media, Zoom calls, group chats, Discord servers and more bring us closer. Our community shows up for each other again and again, in everyday actions and outpourings of support. We build the future we hope for.
How do we come together in a world where so much keeps us apart? Connect/Disconnect seeks that answer.
Connect/Disconnect will be an original devised film, written and created by Sehome Drama students about their experiences during the school closures and 2020 pandemic.
