FILM COMMENT: Festivals: Tribeca après Cannes
“‘[A] courageous, eye-opening documentary about the power of journalism… Both a thriller and an organizing tool."
“Boundaoui’s smart, unsettling documentary functions both as a real-world conspiracy thriller and a personal reflection on the psychological strain of being made to feel an outsider in one’s own home.”
