About:
A portrait of the Christian mayor of Ramallah, Palestine.

The film screened as part of DOC NYC, for which our program notes read:
Filmed in Wuhan, China by an independent crew, this urgent profile covers the length of the city’s lockdown for COVID-19. The film’s suspenseful pacing and otherworldly imagery make it feel like a science-fiction thriller. The heroes are the front-line hospital workers who still manage to find humanity and humor even while fully encased behind PPE. Debuting at the Toronto International Film Festival, the film was widely praised as “utterly compelling” (The Atlantic), “invaluable” (Rolling Stone), and “one of the best” at TIFF (The New York Times).
