Select Press:

Wall Street Journal -- "5 Films Worth Catching At Tribeca"

The Wrap - "Beautiful, sad and stunning, the film lovingly but unflinchingly documents the destructive collision between tradition and modernization, between ramshackle artistry and regimented bureaucracy. At times it has the vibrant spirit of a real-life 'Beasts of the Southern Wild.'”

Variety -- "this resonant documentary is [an]...entertaining mix of pathos and sword swallowing...recording this fascinating community as it struggles to cope with a world that will be poorer for its absence."
