Until We Live Again
Spring 2020 - mankind is under lockdown. Forced to reconcile with loss and deal with an unprecedented crisis, people from all corners of the world come to terms with this reality and decide to let go of the life they once knew, to make way for a new beginning. Revelations, epiphanies, and a new awareness, brought about by the pandemic, drives them to redesign their lives from scratch, within their own homes. The collective testimonial which emerges from their stories begins mankind’s next chapter - one of trust and renewed hope.
Expanding the reach of this film is going to be more important than ever - for both current and future times. At this present moment, many of us can't still cope with last year's events: the chronicles of our protagonists can come to the rescue and inspire to repossess the life lockdown and isolation had stolen, as well as create a new one. And to future generations, Until We Live Again offers an ultimate depiction of the truth people learned about themselves during the darkest isolation moments: who we are at heart as individuals, how we want our life to look, and which promises we made when the world collapsed in front of our eyes. Stories we can't afford to forget.
28 people, 18 different nationalities, across 22 cities in 11 countries. No collective portrayal would have ever been possible without such a diverse array of voices. No testimony could be called global without so many different backgrounds, ages and walks of life.

Until We Live Again is a nonprofit project: every pound the film earns belongs to a selected array of independent charities. In order to maximise this income, the film needs to gain prestige around global festivals - and their submission fees are expensive. That’s why we are crowdfunding, where the money is going to be invested, and why your contribution is so crucial for our long-term success.
