Critic Reviews for Call Her Ganda

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (5)

  • Call Her Ganda works best when it's focused on Laude and the case of her murder, an overwhelming showcase of empathy and persistence in the face of American racism and transmisogyny

  • Even with its stumbling nature... "Call Her Ganda" is still a valiant effort to fuse inquiry, testimony, heart and protest in dealing with its complex intertwining of facts and issues.

  • "My life has value," Ms. Laude once declared. She was right, and this film takes that truth to heart.

  • With access to only one side of its central conflict, and a scattershot approach that skims over key details and points of interest, this well-intentioned documentary leaves audiences feeling like they're only getting part of a much larger story.

  • As suspenseful as it is moving.

  • Laude's family is the heart of the film, however, and the love for their daughter, sister, aunt, and friend shows that they (and she) deserve justice.
