“The Insiders” features the work of 16 actors, 15 writers, and five directors who explore quarantine, crisis, connection and hope over the course of the six films. The films will be streamed on The Astoria Performing Arts Center’s website and on their YouTube channel free of charge, however, the arts nonprofit is asking viewers for a suggested $10 donation.
The films were created in the early days of the shutdown, as artists experimented creating and collaborating from afar.
