- Strasbourg Protected content Glazer -
Dear film enthusiast,

Here is the first of our three short films. The button below will take you to the BBC iPlayer where you can watch ii.

Jonathan Glazer's Strasbourg Protected content out in June this year, while the country was in lockdown and you will see that it deals very directly with confinement and claustrophobia in an emotional and expressive manner. The title of the film is in reference to a strange event that occurred in Strasbourg in the middle ages where a community erupted into hysterical dancing for a number of days. There is some mystery and myth that surrounds the event and as it's so long ago it's unclear as to why or what exactly happened. From what I have read, the spontaneous and contagious hysteria began mainly in young women and may have been bought about by physiological stress relating to the harsh living conditions of the time. It's definitely one to read up on and a fun one to see what you can interpret. Glazer directly compares it to some experience of our lockdown and the living situations that we can find ourselves in nowadays.
