Start.Stop.Repeat : a film by Dr. Nidhi Gupta
We’re excited to announce that we have some time available with NHS frontline doctor Nidhi Gupta, who has been inspired to crowdfund a documentary on pandemics called Start.Stop.Repeat following her harrowing experiences of COVID19.
Nidhi was treating patients suffering from the most deadly symptoms when Coronavirus hit, meaning she herself contracted the virus. Months later, her recovery is still ongoing and the questions she has been asking about pandemics for several years now remain. What does the future hold? Will we learn from the past? Will the pandemic change anything about how we live and our society looking forward?
Nidhi’s feature length documentary Start.Stop.Repeat, which she is currently fundraising for with the backing of funding platform Greenlit, will examine the history of pandemics in interviews with scholars, activists and political figures. She will take on the role of director and producer to uncover some of the positive effects of previous global health scares and examine how we can use these findings to cultivate a less dystopian post COVID19 outlook.
Start.Stop.Repeat will be a non-profit project and guarantees that any income generated will go to Food Bank charities. With the Coronavirus hitting every aspect of society hard, the team are asking for your help, to be part of the solution and find a positive post-Covid19 world.

Peter J. Storey, Greenlit Founder and CEO said, “It’s extremely exciting to be working on the fundraising for Start.Stop.Repeat. Nidhi is both a serious and passionate filmmaker, and a dedicated frontline doctor. In these confusing times, her insight and distinct voice is unique in helping us understand what’s happening, and more importantly, where we might go next. Our mission at Greenlit has always been to empower filmmakers who don’t fit into the regular boxes, and the righteous anger of Start.Stop.Repeat feels essential right now.”
