AV CLUB: Shot two years ago, The Pink Cloud is an eerie sci-fi premonition of pandemic life

"The first months of 2020 were surreal for most everyone on the planet, but they must have been especially so for Iuli Gerbase. The year before, the Brazilian filmmaker shot a script she wrote back in 2017 for a movie called The Pink Cloud, a meditative sci-fi drama about the long-term psychological effects of being stuck in lockdown for extended periods of time. If that sounds familiar, there’s one key difference between our current reality and the film’s: The thing keeping everyone inside isn’t a virus. It’s the pink cloud of the title—a meteorological phenomenon that’s soothing to the eye but fatal to anyone who inhales its vapors."
