The recent and current experience of the pandemic has become such a delicate issue that it is almost impossible to say precisely what is really scary for all of us: the virus itself or its media coverage? Although an experimental short film designed like a nightmare lacking conventional narrative concreteness, ‘Epic Epidemic‘ has a striking accuracy while it is inspired by the infernal noise of panic beyond the walls to suggest an unbearable state of mind. Anders Bigum captures in his project a fragment of the broadcasted madness of the world gripped by the fever of inexplicable terror, illustrating through a character the anguish and the state of cloistering induced by the media that adorn (willingly or not?) the real facts with disturbing ostentation. Without creating a short film tackling in a concrete way the COVID context, the director aims to depict the general typology of a media consumer, drawing the sliding towards the collective madness of a world that either vehemently rejects everything it cannot understand or adopts a hyperbolic attitude regarding the events.
