ABOUT THE FILM
On January 20th, 2020 the US and South Korea both discovered their first cases of COVID-19. However, nine months later, the novel Coronavirus had claimed the lives of over 200,000 Americans and caused staggering economic damage, while in South Korea, there were no significant lockdowns and, in an urbanized population of 51 million, only 344 lives had been lost. The documentary interrogates the question “Where did we go wrong?” and its devastating implications. With damning testimony from public health officials and hard investigative reporting, Alex Gibney exposes a system-wide collapse caused by a profound dereliction of Presidential leadership.
