“Laying bare the ambivalent relationship between society and threatened eco-systems, the haunting imagery patiently and respectfully opens a space for deep reflection. A relentless gaze into the abyss of the Anthropocene.”
    — Berlin Intl. Film Festival

“Deeply sensory. Robin Petré maintains a respectful distance from her subject matter avoiding anthropomorphism at all times while filming with a deeply humane perspective.”
    — Filmuforia
