Synopsis:

Documentary 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. In the Same Breath is produced and directed by Nanfu Wang; produced by Jialing Zhang, Julie Goldman, Christopher Clements, and Carolyn Hepburn.

EXTREMELY TIMELY- AND EXTREMELY IMPORTANT- DOCUMETARY

August 24, 2021
I HOPE THAT EVERYONE TAKES THE CHANCE TO SEE "IN THE SAME BREATH" BECAUSE IT ILLUSTRATES HOW BLIND DEVOTION TO ANY IDEOLOGY CAN MAKE A HEALTH CRISIS WORSE. ON ONE HAND, THERE ARE THE BRUTAL COMMUNIST TOTALITARIAN RULERS OF MAINLAND CHINA WHO HAVE CENSORED AND JAILED (AND MAYBE EVEN MURDERED) SOME OF THE MEDICAL PERSONNEL AND REPORTERS WHO HAVE TRIED TO WARN PEOPLE ABOUT THIS VIRUS, AND, ON THE OTHER HAND, WE HAVE THE ULTRA-CONSERVATIVE TRUMP SUPPORTERS WHO REFUSE TO LISTEN TO EXPERTS LIKE DR. ANTHONY FAUCI BECAUSE THEY THINK THAT DOING SO WILL INTRUDE ON THEIR FREEDOM. I ONLY WISH THAT DIRECTOR WANG HAD EXPLORED THE POSSIBILITY THAT THE VIRUS ESCAPED FROM A LAB IN WUHAN. I KNOW THAT THE CCP HAS ALWAYS CLAIMED THAT IT CAME FROM AN OPEN AIR MARKET, BUT CAN WE REALLY TRUST A GOVERNMENT THAT PERSECUTES THE UIGHURS, TIBETANS, TAIWANESE, AND ALSO THE CHRISTIANS AND FALUN GONG BUDDHISTS IN THEIR OWN COUNTRY?
