Filmmaker Interviews

In this interview recorded in 1996, Mock talks about her portrait of an artist dealing with war and history, and how she feels art has the power to heal.


The Vietnam War Memorial was one of the most controversial monuments of its time. Thrust in to the eye of the storm was architect-sculptor Maya Lin, whose design for the memorial was chosen when she was a 21-year-old college student.

Critical Acclaim

It brought tears to my eyes . . . I can't wait to show it to my daughters. Maya Lin will be a role model for them. She is a great artist and this film captures her talent and her courage.”

— Siskel and Ebert

It begins stunningly as it recounts the controversy over Lin's superb Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington.”
