PRESS QUOTES
 

 

Dir. Abel Ferrara

This film is a knockout.
It shows my city in a way I had never seen before.

 

Berlin Film Journal

A monumental debut...
An exceptional visual and aural feat. 

 

Twitch Film

Monihan´s no-budget debut feature wields exceptional aptitude on formal and stylistic levels, sometimes even brimming with various audio and visual perks such as fleeting explosions of colour and sound signifying desperate escapist psychohygiene.

To put it simply, The Voice of the Voiceless is a revelation.

 

The Irish Times

A black-and-white masterpiece.


Dir. Mahamet-Saleh Haroun

A wonderful film, a ‘golpe’ as you say in Spanish.
And Janeva is magnificent.


Northwest Film Forum

In spite of the subject the film is often drolly funny, and the black-and-white style renders is both bleak and lovely.

 

Transilvania IFF

In her screen debut, actress Janeva Calderón Zentz, with her big, big eyes and her clown-like fragility brings to the screen a mix of Charlot and Giulietta Massina. 

 

Dave Blessing, GQ mag

It's like Chaplin meets Eraserhead. Go.
