ANGELIKA’S NOTE

"A remarkable front-line report… an emotional-wringer… a work of true direct cinema," raves The Hollywood Reporter, "The camerawork and editing are extraordinary in their immediacy and their sensitivity to chaos, exhaustion and resilience - often all at once. There's tenderness too, and awe." Raw and intimate, this documentary captures the struggles of patients and frontline medical professionals battling the COVID-19 pandemic in Wuhan. Rated 100% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes, Hao Wu and Weixi Chen's 76 DAYS premiered at the 2020 Toronto International Film Festival, and received a Gotham Award nomination for Best Documentary.
