Collateral Global announces a new partnership with documentary film “Generation Covid”

We are excited to announce a new partnership with Generation Covid, a unique documentary film about the harms of Covid school closures on American children.

Covid policies had devastating impacts on American children: learning loss, crushing mental health challenges, record-high absenteeism, poverty, and lost opportunity.

Generation Covid is a documentary film that reveals the stark realities of post-covid America with a focus on the long-term harms done to children due to ineffective and prolonged school closures, lockdowns, and other restrictions that were needlessly imposed on their lives.

This partnership will ensure the final editing and production of Generation Covid and support an ambitious post-production marketing and dissemination plan. CG will host showings of the film and events across American college and university campuses to raise awareness about the harms of Covid school closures and their legacy on young people and the educational system.

We will also provide scientific expertise in the final editing of the film, ensuring accuracy of the fats and data used to help tell the story.

There are already strong existing links between Generation Covid and Collateral Global. Prof. Jay Bhattacharya (Stanford) is featured in the film and is a founding member and Trustee of CG. CG has produced three short documentary films on the harms of Covid policies, including Children of Nowhere which focused on the harms of school closures in India.

“Covid school closures hurt American children and the ripple effects will be felt for a generation. Like no other film to date, Generation Covid tackles these issues head-on with brutal honesty and creative self-reflection. Collateral Global is excited to partner with Generation Covid in order to jump-start a national conversation about Covid school closures and their legacy on American children and the educational system.”
