The Jo Cox Commission on Loneliness urge viewers to look beyond their own four walls and help a neighbour in need. This film from St Luke's and Annex’s Oscar Cariss encapsulates the dehumanising effects of isolation.

We join a wooden puppet in a darkened house. Various photos and trinkets suggest better times. While life goes on outside, it sits alone - unblinking and unfeeling. Fortunately, rescue is only a bell chime away.

It’s an effective conceit. The puppet’s blank expression and sombre surroundings make loneliness tangible; his human transformation borne from kindness and nothing more. Together with this housebound experiement, 2017 is the year for reaching out.
