Alarming, arresting, powerful...brave and remarkable...risks a lot, beautiful!"
— San Francisco International Film Festival Jurors
In a particularly memorable sequence actress Tinka Menkes grabs a pair of large, crude scissors and crops her hair to jagged pieces--an act so visually and mentally disturbing that the audience felt and shared her grief deeply...Nina Menkes is an inspirational breath not only for women filmmakers but for all creative individuals oppressed by economic and political situations who question their place and identity to society and to themselves....an exquisite visual essay"
— Dylan Tran, High Performance
Menkes shot this gloriously moody film herself and acted as her only crew with actress/sister Tinka Menkes captivating as a young woman searching for spiritual connection in an alien male world. Some of cinema’s most insanely beautiful landscapes—one of the decade’s best films!”
