Filmmaker Sasha Lebedeva was born and raised in Moscow, Russia, now LA based. Stay At Home Movie is a quirky experimental comedy about the destructive nature of humans and self-persuasion. The narrator tries to convince herself that she is not bored during COVID-19 isolation and that she can and will be productive.
Lebedeva << I was inspired by Roy Andersson’s absurdist style and fixed camera placement and Wes Anderson’s aesthetically pleasing imagery and production design.
The film was shot in a beautiful house in LA where I isolate with my housemates. It started as an act of appreciation of the house. I wanted to feature anything that could be found of interest AT HOME; things that I didn’t appreciate earlier: beautiful lighting, interesting composition, quirky clothes, interiors and exteriors of the house itself.
The film is dedicated to my mom who is far away in another country. I wanted to show her that I am safe and still having fun here in LA. >>
