Secretly filmed in lockdown, using hard investigative reporting, Academy Award ® winning filmmaker Alex Gibney (ENRON: THE SMARTEST GUYS IN THE ROOM), with co-directors Ophelia Harutyunyan and Suzanne Hillinger, obtained damning testimonies from public health officials and senior White House Staff, exposing a system-wide collapse caused by a profound dereliction of Presidential leadership.
With the US election just around the corner, this documentary scrutinises the US response compared with South Korea, and how they handled the virus. On January 20th, 2020 both countries discovered their first cases of COVID-19. Since then, however, the novel Coronavirus has claimed the lives of over 222,000* Americans, while only claiming 453* lives in South Korea.
It will be a generation before we know the full extent of the damage wrought by this pandemic, but TOTALLY UNDER CONTROL will stand as the definitive account of the Trump’s administration’s incompetence and denial in the face of this global pandemic.
