Can we touch each other in a safe way and abide by the necessity of physical distancing? In this IMPAKT TV episode we will be screening the film Safe Touch (2020) by Ingo Nierman. Safe Touch is a tutorial video for the ‘Army of Love’ on how to be safely intimate with strangers during the Covid-19 crisis. After the screening Ingo will stay with us for a Q&A. Send in your question at firstname.lastname@example.org or through the live chat.
