"Quarantine Marathoner" is an animated short film that shows, through metaphors and analogies, the daily life of a boy who was surprised by the coronavirus pandemic. Through his perceptions of imprisonment and bringing reflections about time, he draws a parallel between an athletic marathon and a psychological attempt to maintain activity during the confinement period. The film was created during a quarantine season from images of everyday situations experienced by the authors of the work. The illustrations and a narrative bring an irreverent form, as we discovered at a time when we need to be more multifaceted than ever.
