Director: Selle Sellink, Mirjam Debets
A short animated documentary following three people who share their experiences of the pandemic. Each handles this difficult time in their own way, but it turns out that they share the same way of finding comfort through music.
In this animated documentary, three people guide you through their lived experience as they listen to music that comforted them during the pandemic. All three are experiencing the pandemic in their own way. For example, Rogier and Joosje tell about the musical bond they had during Rogier's narcosis. A glimmer of hope in a dark time. Simone thinks back to the song one of her patients wanted to hear one last time, just before the anesthesia took place. Nature tells how the only bright spot during the pandemic was his music and how it got him through his crisis. All three music experiences are different, yet there is overlap in emotion.
