Impressive
6 September 2018 | by maryameyer-59281See all my reviews

The combination of animation with real people as actors is powerful and effective. I was lucky to have experienced this transporting work of art during the Miami Film Festival--rich, rich, rich, in so many ways. A mind-bending combination of talents at work here. Cutting-edge without trying to be; the whole production feels defined by a palpable honesty. Impressive.
