Title of the Film: Isolation
Genre Psychological Thriller; Narrative

Synopsis
A woman is recovering in a COVID-19 isolation facility waiting for the day when she will be
discharged. While she spends more time in isolation away from her loved ones, the days start to
repeat themselves. As odd things start to happen in the facility, she must try to maintain her grip
on reality and keep her mind from unraveling.

Director’s Statement
I produced the film while my sister and I were in a COVID-19 isolation facility. To cope with the
isolation we were feeling during those 2 weeks of recovery, we made a short film that reflects
the loneliness, depression, and anxiety that was slowly crippling us during our stay.

With nothing but a mobile phone and a little bit of insanity, we were able to capture how some
COVID-19-positive patients may feel when they have to spend 2 weeks in a facility: the days
start to blend together as if you were stuck in a loop, each longer than the last, and the last day
feels like it may never arrive. We’d like to thank the Davao City Sta. Ana Isolation Facility for taking care of us during our stay there, the front-liners who risk their lives every day, and the silent voices who spend days in isolation to protect the people they love. Padayun ta! (Let’s keep going!)
