Lockdown Diaries: made by Rife Magazine and the people of Bristol

Young people from across Bristol share their daily lives and reflections on life during lockdown in this short film.

Soon after the UK went into lockdown we wanted to see what your lives looked like. How did you adapt? What were you doing to stay busy? What did you miss? How were you feeling about the world we live in?

The responses we received completely blew us away, not just in terms of quality, but the sheer range of ideas and responses which embodied this unique period of time. It showed, despite the difficulties we have all faced in recent months, that something positive and creative can rise from it and this collaborative film we’ve all created embodies that idea.
