At the height of the coronavirus outbreak in Wuhan city, five heart-wrenching stories intersect, revealing the universality of our struggles and experiences. With unprecedented access, the film goes beyond the statistics and salacious headlines to reveal the human experiences associated with the outbreak of the virus.

In May 2020, Chang received incredible raw footage shot by a large crew covering a cross-section of people. It is this footage that has been shaped into a feature documentary, to show the intersecting lives that have been affected by coronavirus.

The film is an independent production driven by filmmakers who believe that by experiencing another person’s life, we may better understand our own.

The Executive Producer of this film is Asian martial arts superstar Donnie Yen.

Director Chang is a Doc Edge alumni and award-winner (This Is Not A Movie, China Heavyweight, The Fruit Hunters, Gatekeeper).

NZ PREMIERE

Strikingly crafted as cinema verité, allowing the film’s subjects to speak for themselves, Wuhan Wuhan proceeds into the city’s pandemic-stricken corridors to pursue a story with no predetermined ending - and more about crisis in progress than conclusion.
