Everyone has their own experience of the lockdowns that have taken place across the globe as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. And when you’re a filmmaker confined to your apartment in a Shanghai high-rise, what do you do? Shoot a documentary, of course.
Smithsonian Channel acquired exclusive rights to documentary, COVID: Our Lockdown in Shanghai, which intimately captures the experience of several residents living in the building.
Silver Spring, Md.-based Fogo condensed the struggles, aspirations and ultimately, reunions, of the building’s residents into the above 30-second spot.
COVID: Our Lockdown in Shanghai premieres Monday, May 25 at 8 pm ET/PT on Smithsonian Channel.
