Lies, conspiracies, cover-ups—uncover the truth behind the United States government’s mishandling of the COVID-19 outbreak in this explosive exposé from Academy Award-winning director Alex Gibney. Filmed in secrecy over the course of five months, Totally Under Control charts the avoidable missteps and fatal errors President Donald Trump and his administration made during early months of the crisis. Damning testimonies from key experts and health officials help reveal a system-wide collapse caused by a profound failure of leadership. As cases continue to explode across the country, and a Presidential election looms near, Gibney captures the very moment we’re living in— and how we got here—with the urgency of a thriller.

The film will be available for 48 hours from when you start the stream. Please note streaming is only possible from inside Canada. Need assistance? Visit our FAQ page or email us at
