Beautiful new piece from recent Backyard director addition, Julia Ngeow. Filmed during the Covid-19 lockdown, AND THE PEOPLE combines a collection of readings in 10 languages with user-generated content from over 20 countries to tell a story of resilience and the power of humanity to come together, even while separated. From different cultures, ethnicities, ages, abilities, and across the gender spectrum, it weaves a rich tapestry of life in the age of isolation. Inspired by Kitty O’Meara’s poem In the Time of Pandemic, the film champions solidarity in the age of isolation looking to raise funds for vulnerable women and girls during the COVID-19 pandemic.
