Doc 60 – 3

Total: 65 mins 46 secs

A selection of short documentaries that explore the workings of the human psyche relating to distancing ourselves and connecting with others.  We experience the wonderful world of video-calling, and visit ‘The Palace’ with its rich diversity of regulars.  Banksy strikes again only to become monopolised, and we experience the intimate journey of life on earth seen from an astronaut’s eyes.
