In partnership with MTV Documentary Films, the award-winning 76 DAYS will be offered ONE DAY ONLY for FREE on Saturday, January 23rd to benefit independent cinemas and to commemorate the one year anniversary of COVID lockdown in Wuhan.
About the Film
On January 23rd, 2020, China locked down Wuhan, a city of 11 million, to combat the emerging COVID-19 outbreak. Set deep inside the frontlines of the crisis, 76 DAYS tells indelible human stories at the center of this pandemic—from a woman begging in vain to bid a final farewell to her father, a grandfather with dementia searching for his way home, a couple anxious to meet their newborn, to a nurse determined to return personal items to families of the deceased. These intimate stories bear witness to the death and rebirth of a city under a 76-day lockdown, and to the compassion and human resilience that persists in times of profound tragedy.
