“Critic’s Pick! An inspiring documentary driven by an unwavering belief in the ability of people — particularly young people — to create the world they want to live in.” — Lovia Gyarkye, The New York Times
“Iconoclastic Cantonese pop star Denise Ho, an out lesbian, political dissident and all-around rabble-rouser, is profiled in director Sue Williams’ timely documentary.” — Leslie Felperin, The Hollywood Reporter
“The triumph of Williams’ film is in how it illustrates that the fight for democracy unfolding around the world is one and the same… and Ho’s indelible music could very well be the definitive anthem of our collective struggle.” — Matt Fagerholm, RogerEbert.com
