Synopsis

In the Same Breath, recounts the origin and spread of the coronavirus from the earliest days in Wuhan to its rampage across the United States. In a deeply personal approach, Wang explores the parallel campaigns of misinformation waged by leadership and the devastating impact on citizens of both countries. Emotional first-hand accounts and startling, on-the-ground footage weave a revelatory picture of cover-ups while also highlighting the resilience of the healthcare workers and activists who risked everything to communicate the truth.

This digital screening includes a moderated filmmaker conversation that will be on demand with the film. Participants to be announced soon!

Captioning and ASL will be provided for this virtual showing and conversation.
