“Lyrical. Harrowing. Palmieri and Mosher have taken on a huge and urgent topic, and their work’s impact rests on their refusal to tell viewers how to feel.” – Sheri Linden, Los Angeles Times
“Profound. Impressionistic. A tragicomically beautiful art doc.” – Aaron Hillis, Village Voice
“Sensitive, poetic, and gorgeous, the care and affection Mosher and Palmieri have for their subjects is evident in every scene.”- Dodie Bellamy, SF Moma
