IN THE SAME BREATH
In the Same Breath recounts the origin and spread of the novel coronavirus from the earliest days of the outbreak in Wuhan, China to its rampage across the United States. Director Nanfu Wang (One Child Nation), who was born in China and now lives in the United States, explores the parallel campaigns of misinformation waged by leadership and the devastating impact on citizens of both countries from a deeply personal perspective.
With emotional, first-hand accounts and startling, on-the-ground footage, the film traces a revelatory map of cover-ups and misinformation while also highlighting the strength and resilience of the healthcare workers, activists, and family members who risked everything to communicate the truth.
