HARTFORD, Conn. (WTNH) — Going above and beyond during the age of COVID-19. The City of Hartford released a short ‘thank you’ documentary Wednesday.
Food insecurity, long lines for food and COVID tests, sickness, and death: a year unlike any other. But it’s another reason to be thankful of those who continue to go above and beyond during the pandemic.
“After The Clouds” gives viewers a look at the resilience, dedication, commitment, and the work of public, private, and non-profit workers in Hartford who have helped their communities during the pandemic.
That includes the work of healthcare providers, Hartford Public Schools, and the Department of Public Works.
Hartford Mayor Luke Bronin took part in the official release of the film Wednesday.
“We commissioned this documentary earlier this year because we knew we knew we were at a unique, historical moment that was important to document,” Mayor Bronin explained.
Virgil Griffin, the section leader for the City of Hartford’s Department of Public Works said, “In the documentary, you’ll see a lot of things. You’ll see us laughing, you’ll see us giggling. You’ll see us praying in the morning. There are certain things that we do as a team that makes us more like family.”
Mayor Bronin added, “I hope it gives you the same sense of pride and gratitude for the City of Hartford that I feel when I watch it.”
The documentary is the work of Hartford-based Revisionist Films.
