Competition - Grand reportage

Vieillir enfermés

By Eric Guéret

March 2020: The Covid-19 epidemic strikes the Furtado-Heine home for the elderly in Paris. Out of 120 residents, 35 fall ill with the virus and 8 die, while the nursing department is sorely understaffed. Over the course of three months, Éric Guéret filmed an intimate journey during which, with solidarity and devotion, heroic men and women in white coats fight to save the lives of their elders. A brilliantly moving film.
