Reviews
"Increasingly raw - and riveting." - Ernest Hardy, LA Weekly
"Incorporating home movies and stills from his childhood, superimpositions of sexual encounters, and black and white and color footage of him addressing the camera, Evans puts a uniquely innovative spin on the personal doc genre." - Thomas White, International Documentary

TWN acknowledges that in New York we are on the unceded territory of the Lenni Lenape, Canarsie, Shinecock, and Munsee peoples and challenges the harm that continues to be inflicted upon Indigenous and People of Color communities here and abroad, which is why we all need to be part of the struggle for rights, equality and justice.
