1. Introduction to assignment
This work is what I have termed ‘protest documentary’ which comes to some extent from the ideas of Stott in his discussion about exposé documentary. By means of staging narratives mixed with found narratives I aim to give a perspective that has come from my contextual and textual research on the coronavirus that attempts to illustrate a larger problem than just the virus itself. With this project I endeavour to show something of a backstory to the pandemic based in human behaviour.
I follow the lead of a number of the specialists in their field that give evidence that covid-19 is not simply a virus but a deeper malady expressing that things are out of balance within our society and this current manifestation is simply another expression of that.
I aim to explore creatively something of my own responses to the situation thus presenting something of a personal document about an issue that has touched my own life and others very deeply.
