Critical Acclaim

A visual essay in autobiography. . . . a modest, rigorous and moving work of art. ”

— A.O. Scott, The New York Times (Critics' Pick)

The film’s sense of intimacy, its closeness to real people and painful events, allows it to reach a deeper place than more conventional pieces of political rhetoric. ”

— Walter Addiego, San Francisco Chronicle

Illuminates an otherwise opaque part of human experience with deeply personal but widely resonant observations and emotion. ”

— Ann Hornaday, Washington Post

A powerful personal testimony: the kind of material that never makes the nightly news. ”
