From master documentarian Alex Gibney comes Totally Under Control, which puts a spotlight on the White House’s failed response to the global pandemic and how it could have been prevented.

If the federal government had done its job properly and followed clear guidelines in place based on past pandemics, much of this could have been avoided. While the current administration makes its claims for a job well done, the fact is that the US response to COVID-19 is one of the worst, with 4% of the world’s population and 21% of the deaths. Totally Under Control looks to put the Trump administration on blast by holding them accountable for its incompetence, corruption, and denial in the face of this global pandemic.
