A city of eight million crushed by a pandemic finds hope in an immigrant family’s perspective during the worst of the COVID shutdown.
An immigrant recounts how he and his family survived during NYC’s historic pandemic shutdown during the spring of 2020 when 8 + million people disappeared from its streets. A personal diary of a unique and eerily empty & haunting metropolis captured while running through city streets, embalmed in a state of suspended animation.
This short documentary captures the surreal experience of a teeming city laid bare and the hope for its future.
