“As long as we are alive — we will live” is a collection of candid stories told by people for whom the COVID-19 pandemic has become a battle for the lives of others. Grigory Ilugdin’s documentary focuses on people affected by coronavirus and healthcare workers in the frontlines of this war. From Sochi to Norilsk, frontline doctors, nurses, and support staff talk about the challenges and struggles they faced in 2020: their efforts to cope with anxiety, stress, feelings of fear for themselves and their loved ones while suffering aggression or even violence from covid dissidents. The film also features many people from different professions and backgrounds talking about the origins and consequences of the pandemic. We hear scientists and psychologists, journalists and economists, clergy members and random passersby on the street, many of whom tend to ignore or overlook the dangerousness of the situation. Unfortunately, the infodemic spreads even faster than the pandemic. “As long as we are alive — we will live” provides first-hand testimonies from people who not only understand the dangers of the covid outbreak but also the importance of cooperation.
