Time stood still in 2020. Documentary filmmakers did not.

As billions of people were forced to isolate, quarantine pushed communities, families, relationships and individuals to the edge.

All the while, the mysterious virus at the heart of this crisis passed unseen from one host to the next.

What happens to restless documentary filmmakers when the biggest story of our time is an invisible threat — impossible to capture on film? They turn the cameras on themselves and capture the human impact of coronavirus.

Eager to make something of the moment, co-directors Marie-Philippe Gilbert and Van Royko reached out to friends and fellow filmmakers around the globe. Each was tasked with creating a short film addressing their experience during the global pandemic, recording the impact of COVID 19 on life, death, family, identity, food and immigration.

What emerged is a perspective that is individual as well collective, local as well as global, intimate as well as abstract.

Unfiltered by the exhausting news cycle and state-sanctioned press conferences that have come to define quarantine media, QUIET TIME tells the story of the pandemic through the lens of five Canadian filmmakers from diverse ages, backgrounds and experiences.Their dispatches from around the globe create a tightly woven anthology outlining the new challenges faced by these filmmakers, and by extension, humanity.
