Netflix’s newest series is going to feature a collection of short films, by 18 filmmakers, which encapsulate life in lockdown. Titled ‘Homemade’, the series is based on quarantine during the pandemic and showcases some really creative and innovative filmmaking (is this the same as us making TikToks in our back yard?).
Lebanese actress and filmmaker Nadine Labaki has created two short films with her husband, music composer Khaled Mouzanara. The short films ‘Caramel’ and ‘Capernaum’ will be featured in the streaming service’s Homemade series.
Homemade has stories based on happiness, humour and the pain seen during the current crisis. Other filmmakers include Kristen Stewart in LA and Sebastian Schipper in Berlin. The series represents unity across the globe in such unprecedented times, bringing together diverse stories of quarantine and lockdown.
Homemade will be available worldwide on Netflix from June 20th.
