Surviving Covid

March 2020 – four patients lie in comas in the ICU of a south London hospital, struck down by Covid-19 in Britain’s first surge. This intimate film follows their stories over six months.

Huge thanks to the wonderful musicians who brought so much life to my score for the film – John Dipper (viola d’amore), Dan Mays (bass clarinet and tenor sax), Rory Dempsey (double bass).
