“…an inspirational gift to its viewers, reminding all of us that we must continue writing and re-writing history in order to give voice to those who, otherwise, would be silenced.” - Betty Ann Brown, ART AND CAKE
“Gorgeous graphics and a truly compelling and unique story told with imagination and wit. Valid, beautiful, spiritual, shocking.” - WOFF Judges: Felicity Beckett, Picturehouse Cinemas and Kavita Puri, BBC Our World, Editor
“A Stunningly animated piece that peers into the fabric of feminist surrealism and draws out its numinous thread.” Dario Guerrero, Director of ROCIO
"This marvelous take on our culture and times by one of the funniest comediennes with a grasp on Chaos Theory (and best TED Talkers) has not been released yet due to the unexpected and untimely deaths of first our director, and then our star. Certainly a first for me. Fingers crossed that you’ll have a chance to see this hilarious work!” Miriam Cutler 2019
