Critics reviews

The film marked me, and even if I did not return to it while making The Silent Majority Speaks, it was with me all the time. Emotion as a way of provoking, emotion as a means to control, emotion as a language, a mediated one… one that we also are guilty of writing.

The film is truly gripping precisely to the extent that the viewer is placed in an analogous position to the actual participants in the revolution… The film becomes as much about an unfulfillable desire for some guarantee of televisual veracity, as it is about the chaos of an unfolding historical process.
