SURVIVING COVID

Four patients lie in comas in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) at King’s College Hospital London in March 2020. David, Tobi, Joaquin and Sama have each been struck down by Covid-19 during Britain’s first surge. This intimate, feature length observational film follows their stories – and those of their families – over six months.

Will they live? And if they do, what kind of future awaits them? While we hear from King’s College Hospital doctors, nurses and other staff members as they look back at the surge and discuss the unpredictable toll the virus is taking on these four patients and on the health service, the emotional heart of the film is with the families, as they struggle with the absence of a loved one who remains in the no man’s land of the ICU.

THINGS JOE HAS NOT SAID

In November 2016 Adobe introduced Vocal, an audio editing and generating software. It has been dubbed the Photoshop of voice because, as input, the programme takes 20 minutes of the desired target speech and generates sound-alike voice with even phonemes that were not present in the example material. The announcement was followed by a wave of concern regarding the ethical dilemmas brought up by it’s potential misuse.

This segment was produced at The University of the Underground for the podcast 13 Steps Below.
