“Visually powerful, an image totally involved with the subject..Ward holds one unremittingly in a state of total concentration… cinema without the “Cinema”

Chasseur de Images

“A vignette of tremendous visual power as Ward explores the circumstances of the woman’s life in isolation. There’s no question about Ward’s talent or the empathy that spurred him on.”

San Francisco Chronicle

“Documentary raised to the highest level of cinema humanism”

Alan Johnson – Director San Francisco Film Festival

“A thoroughly devastating documentary on 82 year old Maori woman’s struggle for survival…the most original talent of New Zealand’s First wave belongs to Vincent Ward.”
