“We weren’t made for it, but I think it made us.” Neon + National Geographic released the official trailer for The first wave, a revealing documentary from filmmaker Matthew Heineman. We released the trailer for this film earlier in the year, and it will premiere at DOC NYC this month before opening in select theaters soon. Heineman’s Doc The first wave spotlights the heroes at the epicenter of COVID-19 as they battle one of the greatest threats the world has ever faced. It also highlights the uneven toll of the virus, which from the start has disproportionately affected people of color and the economically disadvantaged. Heineman embedded medical workers at Long Island Jewish Medical Center in Queens, capturing the terrible impact of the pandemic from March through June 2020. NatGeo states that “Matt’s powerful and deeply humanistic film will serve as a historical record of our collective struggle against seemingly insurmountable odds and will also provide some much-needed catharsis as we begin to have a little more hope for the future.” A powerful time capsule showing the remarkable tenacity and fervor of medical personnel.
