Today is St.-Valentine’s Da; even for totally non-practising christians, that means the day we celebrate love and our loved ones. In the run-up to that, hopefully not too commercialised, lovefest, the Washington Post ran Love At Six Feet, a piece by illustrator Julia Rothman and filmmaker and writer Shaina Feinberg about how the current pandemic and its social distancing commandment impacts our love lives.
It’s a short but very moving short documentary, more so because the voices of the people that feature in it, are not framed in a narrative. And because the art is varied and yet consistently powerful.
