“A darkly beautiful and unsettling work.”
Courtney Small, In The Seats

“The jarring juxtaposition of the stunning and peaceful set designs with the
ugly mess of the real subject matter is incredibly haunting. Despite the subject matter,
it’s a film that warrants multiple viewings, so each scene can be studied.”
- Kirsten Murray, Ms En Scene

“Here the pairing of the images and the words hits home, hits hard.
It’s a very short film, yet it packs a punch stronger than most feature films.”
- Emilie Black, Cinema Crazed
