If you are interested in watching covid documentaries, then you are in luck. There are some great documentaries on Netflix that are just waiting to be watched. Here are a few of them.
In the Same Breath
In the Same Breath is a documentary film by Chinese-born filmmaker Nanfu Wang. It is the latest in her ongoing career examining bleak moments in the history of China.
The film explores the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic, with a particular focus on the responses of the Chinese and American governments. Through montage of actual footage and emotional first-hand accounts, Wang weaves a riveting picture of misinformation and cover-ups.
The film was screened at the Sundance Film Festival in January, followed by a limited release on HBO on August 18, 2021. The documentary’s debut was a surprise. Ai Weiwei’s “Coronation” had a similar format.
For many years, Wang lived in China and then in the United States. She still has family there. Despite her roots, she is currently living in New Jersey.
Totally Under Control
Totally Under Control is a documentary that looks at the US government’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Its premise is that the Trump administration was incompetent in handling the virus. The film examines the government’s failure to contain the outbreak, which has killed 200,000 Americans.
Director Alex Gibney’s new documentary began production in April. He shot Totally Under Control in secret over five months.
Totally Under Control begins with the first cases of the COVID-19 virus being discovered. Throughout the documentary, the filmmakers use interviews with government officials and experts to provide an overview of the virus’s spread. They also explore the Trump administration’s denial and negligence.
As the film progresses, it begins to compare the American and South Korean responses to the outbreak. In the end, it is clear that a lack of understanding and leadership have left the U.S. to fall behind.
76 Days is a documentary that tells the story of how the COVID-19 outbreak in Wuhan, China, affected front-line medical staff. The film focuses on nurses and doctors as they struggle to cope with the deadly new virus.
The film was directed by Weixi Chen. Her documentary shorts have won awards at the Hong Kong International Film Festival and the Caixin Media Awards. She was also supported by Tencent News.
76 Days is a human-first look at the COVID-19 outbreak in Wuhan, Hubei province. It chronicles a few weeks when the city was placed under a quarantine to fight the disease. During that time, it also features the birth of a baby and the separation of a father and his daughter from their sick mother.
Unlike other Wuhan documentaries, 76 Days tells the story of individual people, not government policy. This is a good thing, as it shows that the people in the center of the pandemic are not a bunch of bureaucrats.
Ai Weiwei has released a documentary on a coronavirus pandemic in Wuhan, China. The city was one of the first to be hit by the virus. During the course of the disease’s progression, the Chinese government enacted the largest quarantine in history. Its effect on the city’s citizens and the surrounding province has captivated the world’s media.
CoroNation is the product of months of planning, research, and collaboration. Using a mix of mobile phones, cameras, and drones, Ai and his team of roving reporters recorded hundreds of hours of footage. This is the most comprehensive examination of the human experience in a time of crisis ever seen in the history of cinema.
For the discerning cinephile, the 115-minute documentary is an immersive look at a tumultuous time in Chinese society. While the film is not without its glaring flaws, it does a fine job of examining the many facets of the tumultuous Chinese experience.
Died Suddenly is an unsubstantiated conspiracy theory, which claims that many people die suddenly after receiving a COVID-19 vaccine. According to the film, these deaths are part of an ongoing mass genocide involving a group of global elites.
The conspiracy theory has been debunked numerous times. Still, Died Suddenly is being promoted by prominent individuals. As a result, a lot of people are sharing the film on social media. In fact, this video has received over 1.6 million views on Twitter and more than 4 million views on Rumble.
“Died Suddenly” is an attempt by an anti-vax movement to prove a point that is absurd. While there have been a few cases linked to vaccinations, most are not.
The film, directed by Stew Peters, also includes embalmers who claim to have discovered blood clots in the bodies of deceased individuals. However, the embalmers do not have medical training and do not know whether the person’s body was vaccinated.
