On January 20th, 2020 the US and South Korea both discovered their first cases of COVID-19. However, 9 months later, the novel Coronavirus has claimed the lives of almost 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 have been lost. Where did we go wrong? As the presidential election nears, Americans are increasingly enraged by a lack of clear leadership, endemic political corruption and left to wonder how did the wealthiest and most powerful country in the world manage to fail so thoroughly in its response to a global pandemic? Academy Award-winning filmmaker Alex Gibney, directing with Ophelia Harutyunyan and Suzanne Hillinger, interrogates this question and its devastating implications in Totally Under Control. With damning testimony from public health officials and hard investigative reporting, Gibney exposes a system-wide collapse caused by a profound dereliction of Presidential leadership. 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 administration’s incompetence, corruption and denial in the face of this global pandemic.

  1. I am so grateful to those who have risked their jobs to tell the truth in order to protect our health. Doing the right thing, in all circumstances, is my definition of a true public servant. Heroes-every one! Caring about others and leading by example will get us through this pandemic and by extension back to an economic recovery.

  2. You have performed a great public service by making this meticulously researched documentary. You put your own careers and lives at risk. You developed filming technology to lessen the health risks to your crew members and the participants. Every student should be required to watch this movie. If Trump and his enablers had just stood aside and allowed the scientists and health care professionals to do their jobs we could be where S. Korea or Japan is today. It is horrific that Trump continues to promote a mask less death cult.
