Paris (AP) – Sometimes, at best, life affects art and art affects life.
In March 2020, Thomas Leila directed a French televised medical drama that won plaudits from critics that showed the squalid state of French hospitals, with stories such as limited resources, fatal diseases, doctors ’suicide and mental health issues among hospital staff.
But when the pandemic struck, Laylaty realized the world didn’t need drama to clear this story – it was happening everywhere around her.
The creator of the successful drama “Hippocrates,” a former physician, was so influenced by the urgency of the epidemic that he was unable to withdraw: he put on his robe.
Lilti, qui écrit et dirige également l’émission de télévision portant le nom de l’ancien médecin grec Hippocrate, a fini par travailler dans un hôpital l’année dernirouère lorsque le tournage du coronavirus deuxième saison veru étoné in France.
“As a doctor, I humbly tried to introduce my hand and knowledge and return to the hospital after leaving work for eight years. I’m just trying to make it better,” he said.
With more than 102,000 patients dying from the virus, France has one of the worst death figures in Europe, after the United Kingdom, Italy and Russia.
With her studio closed, Laylati has transported a batch of a multimillion-dollar range – items like real stretchers, trolleys and IV racks – to a veritable French hospital facing stress in the midst of the pandemic: Robert Balanger Hospital in Aulne Souss. Bois, a suburb of Paris.
“We donated all our medical equipment used in shooting to the hospital emergency room to try to help them,” he said.
Then he worked at Robert Balanger Hospital for about a month, helping patients locate medical records and use the skills he learned before becoming a writer and director. A few weeks later he was forced to retire due to the lack of modern health insurance.
But the experience will affect him, and also French television, in many ways. Use the drama of Back to Work to rewrite the second season of the show.
He said, “This direct collision between imagination and reality has been a very powerful and moving experience for me.” (“The series) deeply features this adventure.”
The second season of Hippocrates is broadcasting in France this month on Channel +.
