“A revelation…shines a light into the future of the lyrical documentary with its brilliant portrait of novelist Dorothy Allison. [DiFeliciantonio and Wagner] tell us more about life and love and creativity in this short film than most features can manage.” — B. Ruby Rich, San Francisco Bay Guardian

“Poignant, concise, powerful. The harrowing and amazing trajectory of Dorothy Allison’s life story is beautifully expressed. DiFeliciantonio and Wagner use cinematic verve and gentle lyricism to provide a compelling glimpse into the life of someone who has triumphed over the chain of violence.” —Aspen Shortfest Jury’s Statement

“The powerful first-person narrative of acclaimed author Dorothy Allison (Bastard Out of Carolina) is interwoven with evocative imagery…. Throughout these painful stories, Allison retains a sense of humor and humility that is illuminating.” —Charlotte Film & Video Festival
