Nursing Home Residents’ COVID Experience Featured on PBS

Fire Through Dry Grass is now available for streaming on PBS. The documentary film, from OPEN DOORS/Reality Poets, uncovers the real-time devastation experienced by residents of a New York City nursing home during the COVID pandemic. Using GoPros clamped to their wheelchairs, Andres “Jay” Molina and fellow Reality Poets, Vincent Pierce and Peter Yearwood, all residents of Coler Nursing Home, on Roosevelt Island, New York, document their isolation and frustration while on a year-long “lock down.”
