El mundo en pausa is a documentary featuring images of everyday life that anonymous citizens of Latin America, Spain and Portugal recorded during a day of the lockdown brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic. Directed by audiovisual creators, El mundo en pausa is a collective portrait of a specific day in a historic year for humanity: April 30 2020, a day in the year of the pandemic. Citizens of 23 Latin American countries used their mobile phone cameras to capture their lives, thoughts and everything around them during lockdown, thus painting a portrait of how people in very different places coped with this turning point in the history of humankind. El mundo en pausa is a window into everyday life in an exceptional situation.
