Synopsis

Covid-19 is laid bare in this zeitgeisty documentary cataloguing the 76 days after the 11 million inhabitants of Wuhan went into lockdown on 23rd January 2020.

Reminiscent of an apocalyptic movie, scenes are all the more chilling for their up-close and personal reality, showing patients and medical staff battling for survival under extraordinary stress. This immersive film is directed by Hao Wu who, while based in the US, gained unique access to the crisis through a collaboration with newcomer Weixi Chen and an anonymous contributor.

The footage captured reveals poetic, humorous, and tender moments, resisting a wider critique in favour of showing, not telling. What results is a compelling and disturbing account of the start of a now familiar global pandemic.
