This gripping documentary follows the urgent effort to contain and treat the novel coronavirus in Wuhan, China in the first months of the pandemic. Shot across four hospitals in the province, 76 DAYS captures scenes of chaos, empathy, and resilience, as medical workers contend with supply shortages and exhaustion while fighting the unknown disease. Given unprecedented access during a critical stage in the Chinese government’s coronavirus response, the filmmakers have crafted a rare and often astonishing look at COVID-19’s human toll. 

“A remarkable documentary. A bracingly immediate view from the frontlines of history.”
– David Ehrlich, IndieWire

Co-presented by the Block Museum of Art with the Department of Radio/Television/Film at Northwestern University.
