National Geographic’s ‘The First Wave’ Trailer Shows the Lives of New Yorkers and Healthcare Workers Amid the Pandemic

The documentary will premiere on November 19

National Geographic is bringing to us the grave situation of the world when the coronavirus pandemic first hit us in March 2020. Their new documentary, The First Wave, will give us an exclusive look inside the Long Island Jewish Medical Center, which was one of the hardest-hit hospitals in New York.

Matthew Heineman, the Oscar-nominated and Emmy-Winning director known for A Private War is at the helm of this documentary. He also produced the series under his company, Our Time Projects, along with Jenna Millman and Leslie Norville. The First Wave has already won multiple awards when it was debuted at the Hamptons International Film Festival, and the Montclair Film Festival.

The trailer

In the trailer, we see perspectives from both the patients whose lives turned upside down when either them, or the people they loved were affected by the virus, and the doctors and nurses, who were putting their lives on the line to save patients who were rapidly being admitted.

The First Wave being a documentary, has no actors. We see Dr. Nathalie Dougé and ICU nurse Kellie Wunsch, who are seen treating patients and putting their lives on the line at the same time. Then we see Ahmed Ellis and Brussels Jabon, both of whom had tested positive for COVID-19. We see both parties take on the emotional and societal burden after being exposed to the pandemic.

Heineman’s reason for adapting

Heineman said that he felt a deep responsibility to document this sudden change in time, and wanted to put people in the shoes of those who worked on the front lines. He said that people can interpret the documentary in different ways, but for him, it is about people getting together at a time of crisis, their resilience, and the strength of the human spirit.

We can’t wait for The First Wave to Release Soon.
