Before Covid or After Covid


Irrespective of what happens from this point onward, all fiction and films created in the past (even those in the can and still due to come out as new fiction or films) will be period pieces not reflecting the transformed world we are now entering since only a month or two ago.

As one example, I think the social distancing choreography is pretty radical.
I was watching a film just now, feeling worried at the close proximity of people in public places!

And, of course, most importantly, the potential healing of Climate Change…in reality and in how this affects art and other human and natural activity.
