For all your isolation viewing needs. The strict quarantine measures in place around the world vary in intensity, but one thing is for sure, we must continue to tough out at least another month of solitude and social distancing - Australia at least.
Thankfully for us, Artistic Director of French Maison Celine, Hedi Slimane has gifted us with his curated selection of films in collaboration with streaming service MUBI. The selection of films ranges from MUBI’s hallmarks of Hollywood, to cult classics and more, providing us with a snapshot of iconic cinematic moments.
The film curation of classics includes The 400 Blows, 1959 by François Truffaut; Apocalypse Now, 1979 by Francis Ford Coppola; Charade, 1963 by Stanley Donen; Laurence Anyways, 2012 by Xavier Dolan; Le Cercle Rouge, 1970 by Jean-Pierre Melville; Night Tide, 1961 by Curtis Harrington; Paris Texas, 1981 by Wim Wenders; Persona, 1966 by Ingmar Bergman; Pierrot Le Fou, 1965 by Jean-Luc Godard and Red Desert, 1964 by Michelangelo Antonioni.
Lucky for you (and us) the films can be viewed for free for the next 30 days on MUBI here.

Remember, confinement is not a competition and we don’t have to optimise our isolation. It can be an anxiety inducing time for some as the unknown is scary. Be sure to keep your immune system in check and stay informed with your health department’s latest recommendations and help out those in need wherever possible.
