In-Between, 2020 is a short film by the Finnish visual artist, choreographer, and film director Anna Nykyri, in which she collaborated with the photographers Aukusti Heinonen, Juan Pablo de la Vega and Griselda San Martin in different cities around the world – Helsinki, Mexico City, and New York, respectively – to capture its cityscapes during the pandemic and their relationship with the transient bodies that avoid contact with each other. The documentary film curated by Andrea Valencia, is conceived as a montage that compiles photography and moving image to grasp the results of social distancing in the three cities, which are connected by the shared experience of the pandemic. By capturing details and fragments of the spaces and the moving bodies, In-Between suggests that, while movement and touch are being restricted, we are living an emotional collective experience.
