My Boyfriend Died of COVID-19
As 2019 drew to a close, a young woman, Niuniu, and her fiancée, Tongsheng, looked forward to a bright future. In the spring, as the cherry blossoms fell in Wuhan, the couple would get married. They had started saving up to buy a house. Just a month later, however, their dreams came to a grinding halt. A new animated short documentary, based on a series of Niuniu’s WeChats, tells the heartrending story of Tongsheng’s battle with COVID-19.
"My Boyfriend Died in Wuhan" was directed by Olmo Parenti. It is part of The Atlantic Selects, an online series of short documentaries from independent creators, curated by The Atlantic.
