A Diary of Windows and Small Things


In April 2020, a few weeks after Europe had entered lockdown, twenty-one writers living in the UK, France and Germany agreed to collaborate with artist and Squad Core Team member Stevie Ronnie to make an experimental film. A Diary of Windows & Small Things is the result of that experiment. These rare and moving glimpses into our shrinking world were written, shot and recorded by the writers themselves using only their mobile phones.

Each writer was given a time of day to work with and asked to record the view from their window alongside a new piece of writing. These recordings were then arranged chronologically into a video diary that creatively documents this strange and unique moment in history. The title track: Ugly Year is by Squad grad Francesca Pidgeon.
