NewsDoc Alum Nanfu Wang wins Peabody Award for “In the Same Breath”

Nanfu Wang

Nanfu Wang, who graduated from the NewsDoc program in 2014, has won a Peabody Award for her documentary film “In the Same Breath.” The Pulitzer committee wrote, “The documentary offers viewers unprecedented access to the frontline workers in Wuhan hospitals during the months where no one knew much about a novel coronavirus, with many of Wang’s camera operators opting for anonymity even in the film’s credits, a powerful reminder of the risk they took in capturing what state media carefully kept out of view.” Her documentary can be seen on HBO.
