Oscar-winning documentary filmmaker Alex Gibney gives urgent testimony to the fatal failure of the American government in the face of Covid-19. His riveting documentary gathers shocking evidence of incompetence, corruption and unwillingness to follow the course of action recommended by experts. It is also a scathing indictment of the administration of former President Donald Trump, whom Gibney sees as the main culprit in the deaths of hundreds of thousands of Americans and the loss of jobs for millions more.
