The Container

A film the whole world can relate to.

Written by Jackie Dominguez

It’s crazy that I truly believe that most of the world right now can relate to the film The Container. To be afraid, aggravated, hungry, and uncertain. This time in our live will be marked as history, where many feel terrified just like the immigrants from The Container.

The world right now is being contained by practicing social distancing in our homes. We are being forced to be uncomfortable and to be surrounded by people we may not even want to be around with. This film is very strong into drawing you in on what the characters are feeling to truly understand what it is like to be afraid, lost, and uncertain.

The Containers, sends out the message that we have to work with the little that we have even if it means sacrificing things and taking the risk.

When I clicked on the link to the dance performance of Virago-Man Dem, I didn’t know that a performance during this hard time would provide me with a comfort that I didn’t think was possible to have in a time like this.

I would’ve never imagined I would be watching a performance like Virago-Man Dem in my living room, but here we are.
