Have to agree with the reviewer who said this is largely a waste of time. I understand that a lot of the film's structure is intended to be artistic, but unlike most Independent Lens productions I've seen, this one seems to shout, "Look how artistic we can be," without the underlying thematic content to back it up. I didn't find this to be a worthwhile viewing, although the filmography, as always with Independent Lens, is conducted beautifully. Still, images with no continuity make for an unfulfilling experience.

As with the other reviewer, I also would have liked to see more tangible experiences in these people's lives to allow me to connect with them on some level beyond the mere pictorial. This film feels like a collage of images with no deeper thread to provide meaning and relevance.
