SBS’ The Feed presents ‘Story Line’: stories from 6 months of COVID-19

The half-hour documentary is based on voice recordings from around the country. It premieres next week.

On 21 July, SBS The Feed will release ‘Story Line, a project compiling voice memos from Australians detailing their experiences in the six months since the WHO declared a global pandemic. The first spoken line in the documentary is, ‘Hello? Is anybody there?’ This sets the tone perfectly for this half-hour documentary, which is comprises stories collected via a dedicated phone line. It also takes a creative approach to filming, to make up for the impossibility of traditional filming: it combines archival footage and stock footage with the voice recordings, creating a collage of the last few months.
