How To Be At Home by Andrea Dorfman

Watch this whimsical animation on combating the COVID-19 isolation blues. Created by Canadian filmmaker Andrea Dorfman and poet Tanya Davis:  

NFB How To Be At Home description:

Lean into loneliness — and know you’re not alone in it. Filmmaker Andrea Dorfman reunites with poet Tanya Davis to craft tender and profound animation on the theme of isolation, providing a wise and soaringly lyrical sequel to their viral hit How to Be Alone.
