Hao Wu is a documentary filmmaker. Over the course of his career, he has made a series of compelling and insightful films about China, including People’s Republic of Desire (2018), about China’s live-streaming communities, and All in My Family (2019), a Netflix Original Documentary about the process of Wu’s Chinese family accepting his gay identity. Born and raised in China, Wu now lives in New York. From 2008–2011, he was a fellow at New America, the D.C.-based think tank. His most recent film, 76 Days (2020), premiered this fall and provides a raw depiction of both patients and healthcare workers in Wuhan hospitals during the early days of the Covid-19 pandemic. Wu worked with two co-directors who were on the ground in Wuhan, Weixi Chen, a video reporter for Esquire China, and Anonymous, a local reporter who remained unidentified due to political sensitivities.
