A gripping on-the-ground account of the early days of the Covid-19 outbreak in Wuhan, Wuhan Wuhan balances the urgency and tension of observational footage filmed within emergency rooms and field hospitals with a gentle, intimate, and human look into the day-to-day life of its citizens as the city is shut down.

For an emergency taxi driver, Yin, ferrying essential workers provides a unique insight into the outbreak. For his expectant wife, Xu, counting down to her due date brings trepidation and uncertainty.

Punctuated with passages both meditative and even a little surreal as it opens up in the wider city, the film is both a document of a catastrophic time and a fascinating look beyond the facts we all think we know, at the people affected.
