An invaluable depiction of a metropolis joining together to overcome a crisis.

At the height of the coronavirus outbreak in Wuhan city, five heart-wrenching stories intersect, revealing the universality of our struggles and experiences.  With unprecedented access, the film goes beyond the statistics and salacious headlines to reveal the human experiences associated with outbreak of the virus.  In May 2020, co-director Chang received incredible raw footage shot by a large crew covering a cross-section of people. It is this footage that has been shaped into a feature documentary, to show the intersecting lives that have been affected by coronavirus.    Wuhan, Wuhan is an independent production driven by filmmakers who believe that by experiencing another person’s life, we may better understand our own. The Executive Producer of this film renowned superstar Donnie Yen. 

Strikingly crafted as cinema verite, allowing the film's subjects to speak for themselves, Wuhan Wuhan proceeds into the city's pandemic stricken corridors to pursue a story with no predetermined ending - and more about crisis in progress than conclusion.
