On January 23, 2020 the city of Wuhan, with a population of 11 million people, went into mandatory lockdown. Raw and intimate, 76 Days documents the struggles of patients and frontline medical professionals in Wuhan, ground zero for the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic. The filmmakers capture the despair and fear of the patients and their families. They show the compassion and selflessness of the hospital workers, outfitted in full PPE. Every bed is full with many more waiting to get in. An elderly patient with dementia wanders the halls, confused about his whereabouts. A hospital worker sits at a desk piled with cell phones and the personal belongings of those who have passed. It is her job to call their families. When a first-time mother is rushed into surgery for an emergency C-section, her husband is forbidden to be by her side. For days, she waits anxiously to meet and hold her baby daughter. This is a searing and unforgettable account of Wuhan’s lockdown that would last for a terrifying 76 Days.
