Portugal: The Battle against Covid-19 – Portugal registered numbers of deaths and infections much lower than those of its neighboring countries Spain, France and Italy. This documentary takes a look back at Portugal’s response to the pandemic, and talks to Intensive Care Unit doctors, firefighters, business-owners and photojournalists, demonstrating the complexity of this struggle. We can also witness the emotions that the elderly in confined Homes felt when they were able to see their family members for the first time in months, in very different conditions than usual. A unique documentary made in Portugal, during the time of the State of Emergency.
