‘Intensive’ is based around Oliver’s experience of contracting Covid-19, and later developing Kawasaki Syndrome, causing the otherwise fit and healthy twenty-one-year old’s organs to shut down, rendering him comatose and near the brink of death in St Thomas’ Hospital. His dreamlike recollections are humorous, harrowing, and yet often life-affirming. There will also be readings from the ‘Living Warriors: Covid’ book, with words from a nurse, teacher, filmmaker and more, all of which, like us, have had different encounters with Covid – and we will see and hear, that despite our collective isolation, we are pushing on together.
Watch Animations: “Intensive”, “Many Talking”, as well as our other Living Warriors films of survival.
Oliver Pratt’s animation ‘Intensive’ was chosen to be featured across the BBC (BBC Ideas, on their official Instagram, Facebook, & Youtube, for #InternationalDayforPeoplewithDisabilities 2021 (3rd Dec).
