Life in quarantine took a mental toll on every one of us. This short film “A Beginner’s Guide To Quarantine from a Born-Again Optimist” shares lighthearted tips from a pessimist-turned-optimist perspective during quarantine, with hopes to add humor and levity into these downtrodden times. 

This quarantine film was selected and featured by film festivals worldwide including Shiny, New Faces New Voices, Dumbo Film Festival, and the Quarantine Film Challenge.
