GETTING THROUGH A PANDEMIC: SMALL BUSINESSES cover image
Getting Through the Pandemic: Small Businesses is very appealing documentary. I found myself unable to look away. It shows a fascinating facet of the pandemic, and has engaging subjects. The film interviews several small business owners about their experiences during the pandemic.

The film has great content and watching it play out on screen is fascinating. The one complaint I have is that the film is extremely depressing. Even though most of the interviewees have a positive outlook, you can tell that many of them are stressed. Many discuss worrying about their families.

The film has very simple but impressive cinematography. I especially like the way the interviews are shot and how they focus on the subjects' faces. This makes the film compelling and emphasizes the human aspect of businesses. The film has no background music, but it does have a lot of background noises - some of which are distracting. This enhances the viewer's experience and drives home the importance of the business owners. I must praise the scriptwriter, for the questions are well composed and get to the heart of economic issues during the COVID pandemic.

The message of this film is about perseverance, how these business owners have persevered during this pandemic. The film taught me more about the plight of small business owners during the pandemic. It taught me about how flexible both people and businesses can be. The film also made me want to know more about how federal business aid is given, and how businesses are surviving and thriving throughout the pandemic. My favorite parts of the film are the interviews. They are honest, well-written and mostly well shot.

I give Getting Through the Pandemic: Small Businesses 5 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 12 to 18, plus adults. I recommend this film because it is engaging and teaches children about what it is like to be a small business owner during the pandemic. This would play well at any festival that is examining the consequences of COVID-18, business or documentaries. Reviewed by Sandrine A., KIDS FIRST! Juror.
