We've seen loads of lockdown shorts putting forward disperate points of view, but few have gone quite as literally down the POV track as director Markus Schröder engaging #rethink.

Shot shortly after relocating from London to rural Bavaria (close to from where he originally harks), just as the Corona crisis hit, the film is a manic meditation of what lockdown life means, and how it has allowed us to assess our lives.

Entirely told through POV (achieved with a homemade helmet rig, causing his new neighbours to "probably think I'm a little crazy"), the personal nature of the commentary and engaging shooting style and edit makes for a delightful micro-snapshot into another's mind.
