    Let’s Have a Picnic Downstairs: Shanghai Neighbors Film Lockdown Life

    What will a doctor, a therapist, a group-buy coordinator, a young idealist, a writer, and a journalist do when they find out they are neighbors in a lockdown? They set out to make a documentary. This short video essay is about an impossible relationship formed in a once-in-a-lifetime setting. By making it, a group of young neighbors in Shanghai remember their lost spring. Presented to you by Sixth Tone.
