< TOGETHER IN ISOLATION: THE LOCKDOWN OF THE FAROE ISLANDS>
For almost one hundred days the Faroe Islands - a small and isolated Atlantic nation - were under the initial lockdown, struggling together to avoid fatal consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Faroe Islands are one of the few countries that dealt with the COVID-19 epidemic in a quick and efficient way. Thanks to a sense of collective responsibility and swift action, the Faroese avoided tragic consequences which could befall such a small and isolated population. To this day, no fatalities due to the virus have been reported, and the number of infected inhabitants didn't exceed 200 people. Kuba Witek, the film's director, got stuck on the Faroe Islands during the initial lockdown. He used this opportunity to document the struggles of this small nation in their fight against a global threat.
Kuba Witek is a film director, traveler and author.
