Netflix ‘Homemade’ films to show life in lockdown
June 24, 2020
Netflix has unveiled Homemade, a collection of short films created by celebrated filmmakers around the world. Confined at home as a consequence of the Covid-19 outbreak, filmmakers created personal stories that capture our shared experience of life in quarantine. Produced by The Apartment Pictures, a Fremantle company, and Fabula, Homemade is a celebration of the craftsmanship of filmmaking and the enduring power of creativity in the face of a global pandemic.
Filmed using only equipment found at home, the stories range from intimate diaries of the filmmakers’ day-to-day life to short tales of fiction across multiple genres, offering a magnifying glass over how the lockdown impacted different countries and lives around the world.
Lorenzo Mieli, CEO of The Apartment, Fabula’s Juan de Dios Larraín and Pablo Larraín have rallied filmmakers from all around the world to join the project.
Teresa Moneo, Director Original Films at Netflix: “Seeing the stories of others can open hearts and minds and make us all feel more connected. This is why, in these unprecedented times, we are humbled to work with this incredible ensemble of diverse filmmakers and to bring their personal stories to our members around the world”.
The anthology will be made available globally on Netflix on June 30th.
