“Hands down this was the best film for me. Entertaining, interesting and important to the art world.” Larry Greenfield, judge
“This film changed my life, my thinking about the importance of surrealism in many important contexts, which now affect my writing.” Wendy, a viewer.
Best Documentary Film at the 2019 Ann Arbor Film Festival!
Blending animation, interviews and a trippy soundscape, this is a fitting look at the life of radical academic and writer Gloria Feman Orenstein’s serendipitous life. She vividly conjures an alternative history of art, surrealism and eco-feminism in the 20th century, with lively anecdotes about Leonora Carrington, Meret Oppenheim and Jane Graverol, to name a few.
~Eileen Arandiga, Canadian International Documentary Festival
…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
