On Dialogue: Jenn Lindsay and Quarantined Faith

14 April 2021

For this episode of “On Dialogue” we sat down with Dr. Jenn Lindsay, a documentary filmmaker and KAICIID Fellow, who during the onset of the first COVID-19 lockdown, produced a short documentary film about how religious communities in Rome found creative solutions to celebrate Passover, Easter and Ramadan despite the lockdown. In her film Quarantined Faith, Lindsay documents how members of the different religious communities of Rome found new ways to stay connected through innovative storytelling methods and how the isolation brought them closer together in many ways. 

Following the release of the film, we invited Lindsay to talk with us about her deeply personal experience in making the film, as well as the challenges and discoveries she faced shooting a documentary without being able to leave her home.
