Mothers’ Aid & Live Without Violence – Isolation
Christina Amundsen (& Emilie Thalund)

To create this campaign for domestic abuse hotlines, directors Christina Amundsen and Emilie Thalund asked directors and photographers in their network to contribute footage. By piecing the many different clips together in a coherent narrative, the duo created a powerful visual mosaic of a film, highlighting the terror of being stuck in an abusive home. It is a film created in isolation about isolation.


Another day of success
