About the Film

Set in the early days of the COVID-19 outbreak, this raw and intimate documentary captures the struggles and human resilience in the battle to survive the pandemic in Wuhan, China.

On January 23rd, 2020, China locked down Wuhan, a city of 11 million, to combat the emerging COVID-19 outbreak. Set deep inside the frontlines of the crisis in four hospitals, 76 DAYS tells indelible human stories at the center of this pandemic—from a woman begging in vain to bid a final farewell to her father, a grandfather with dementia searching for his way home, a couple anxious to meet their newborn, to a nurse determined to return personal items to families of the deceased. These raw and intimate stories bear witness to the death and rebirth of a city under a 76-day lockdown, and to the human resilience that persists in times of profound tragedy.

Press

"One of the best I saw via Toronto is 76 Days, a tough, very good Chinese documentary about the first months of the pandemic in Wuhan." –Manohla Dargis, New York Times

"By far the most of-the-moment selection this year was the world premiere of 76 Days, a riveting documentary filmed during the shutdown in Wuhan, China… [an] astonishingly candid and deeply wrenching portrait of death, suffering and compassion." –Ann Hornaday, Washington Post
