Kristen Stewart and more directors are feeding us quarantine shorts on Netflix

Are you wondering what goes into the lockdown lives of your favorite creatives? Well, 17 filmmakers just made the quarantine project your watchlist needs.

According to Hypebae, Netflix is premiering an anthology called “Homemade” on June 30. Helmed by brothers Pablo Larrain and Juan De Dios Larrain, “Homemade” is a collection of short films made by filmmakers around the world during our isolation situation including Kristen Stewart (“Come Swim”), Ana Lily Amirpour (“A Girl Walks Home At Night”), Ladj Ly (“Les Misérables”), Naomi Kawase (“True Mothers”), Rachel Morrison (“Black Panther”) and more.

Think diary entries carefully squished into five- to seven-minute shorts—honest narratives not suffocated by the usual pressures of big movies. “For once in our careers, this wasn’t about money, agencies, lawyers or the Hollywood structure,” says Juan in an interview with Variety.

Meanwhile, Pablo tackles adversity in the show as it’s meant to. “We’re all sharing very similar circumstances in different contexts.” Using equipment found in their homes, these creatives reveal the subplots of their daily cycle—including Zoom calls.

For each participating filmmaker, Netflix will donate to third parties and non-profit organizations to help out-of-job TV and film industry crew.

The trailer looks soft and sentimental AF—if this isn’t vulnerability, I don’t know what is.
