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. 


The film will be available for 7 days, beginning on April 2, via the Block Museum’s Eventive platform: Pre-order a free ticket for access. The screening will be limited to 200 viewers. 


Northwestern will host co-director Hao Wu (ALL IN MY FAMILY, PEOPLE’S REPUBLIC OF DESIRE) for a live conversation with NU Professor Zayd Dohrn and University of Chicago Associate Professor Rachel DeWoskin.
