Isolation has seen many filmmakers and artists tell their stories to camera, with some offering insightful, creative looks at the situation and others... well... at least they weren't bored.

Thankfully, the impactful film What Dwells In Me from directors Del and Larissa Zaidan falls firmling in the former camp, detailing the experiences of three artists in lockdown: Lay, a rapper from Osasco who lives with her grandmother; Pegge, a 22-year-old "boy raised without a father"who recently started painting; and Mackaylla, a drag queen from Brasília who came to São Paulo a few years ago.

Heartfelt and intimate, with a visual style that engages from the get-go, this smart and succinct short makes for an interesting omnibus.
