Director Lisa Rideout explores what’s missing in a neighbourhood impacted by social distancing.

“This film explores an absence that characterizes spaces during social distancing. I wanted to emphasize the scenes impacted by social distancing in my neighborhood and to challenge the normalcy that some of these changes have taken on. I hope it’s a reminder to people about what is missing and what will continue to be missed if we aren’t careful.”– Lisa Rideout
