Blowin' Up offers one of the most hopeful real-world visions of heroic women - from the judge and DAs to the attorneys, social workers, counselors and, not least, the defendants - ever to fill the screen.
The movie does have a verdict: It's time to change up the way we police, criminalize, and vilify sex workers without hearing their stories.
The characters are riveting and the photography is casually stylish, but the real highlight is the urgency of the work Wang-Breal captures.
A female-focused story of survival and friendship that transcends the typical story of doom and gloom that usually accompanies these characters.
The result is brilliant in every way.
Stephanie Wang-Breal's remarkable Blowin' Up [is] a look at Queens' Human Trafficking Intervention Court.
Blowin Up is ultimately a film more about the need for a better system than a perfect solution. But with its generous, devoted attention to the people working on that solution, it is a work full of hope.
Blowin' Up winds up being a powerful ode to a sanctuary city.
The documentary, directed by Stephanie Wang-Breal, is a beautiful exploration of both the courtroom and the lives of the women who operate it.
