Bisley and Lintott's 'Garage Stories' to play at NZIFF

From adversity springs creativity! Congratulations to Catherine Bisley and Kat Lintott whose 12-minute short Garage Stories: A Strange Collective Experience Of Isolation will be playing at the New Zealand International Film Festival, in the Kiwi Shorts selection. In a series of vignettes, the film beautifully captures the strange experience of a nation in isolation. It was shot in Level Four lockdown across ten different households who were directed remotely, and who worked with the equipment and props available to them in their bubbles.
