What are people saying?

  • Kamran's rating of the film Walking Under Water

    Apparently never logged from VIFF '14: http://nextprojection.com/2014/10/20/viff-food-chains-walking-water-trespassing-bergman-just-eat-food-waste-story-52-tuesdays-reviews/ Overall, Walking Under Water provides a highly sensory experience and a strong cultural message to boot. The music and underwater scenes are galvanizing while the films commentary on lost traditions is rather sincere and valuable. 81/100
