Vice Documentary: London's Invisible War on COVID.

  • Vin Sharma

London is one of the most ethnically diverse regions in the UK and wider Europe. Southall in West London, within Greater London is one of its most diverse parts. I coordinated access across a broad area of Southall's communities to explore why the national UK government is saying that it presents unique challenges in response to COVID and the pandemic. From meeting and showcasing the incredible and diverse community heroes .. to also highlighting some of the backstreet villains and rogues. From reformed gangsters and vigilante anti-heroes to the challenges faced by local emergency services and the hospital ICU's. To be showcased across VICE's global platforms .. this is a deep snapshot of a truly fascinating and very unique part of London where community spirit still exists, despite all the old and new challenges.
