Pandemic films at Sundance 2021

“The crew was sending me texts saying ‘Iuli what happened? The scenes that we shot last year are becoming reality!’ It was bizarre because it was supposed to be a sci-fi and surrealistic and not at all realistic. So it was a strange feeling” – Iuli Gerbase, director of The Pink Cloud.

Brazilian film The Pink Cloud, a pandemic-themed movie that screened at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, depicts a world where people are forced to live under lockdown for years.

It’s not a response to COVID-19 because it was shot before the pandemic took hold. But the film directed by Iuli Gerbase uncannily mirrors reality.
