Film Documenting the Pandemic From Children’s Perspectives

As the nation grapples with the impact and fears of COVID-19, these times continue to be unpredictable and emotionally charged, especially for children. Global Oneness Project is sharing a new short documentary that captures the experiences and emotions of youth. Cocoon, by Andrew Hinton, documents the early months of the pandemic in April 2020, when many businesses, restaurants, and schools were closing due to the nationwide lockdown. Told through the perspective of students, aged 4–17, living in Portland, Oregon, the film explores their views on health concerns, job loss, and school changes. It allows students today to peek into the lives of their peers and find connections with their experiences, thoughts, and emotions. As they work on companion lessons, Global Oneness Project welcomes teachers’ ideas for using the film with students.
