Critic Reviews for Liyana
A spirited testament to the power of creativity - not only as a source of strength and joy, but as a way to access buried emotions.
Though Liyana often feels more like an exercise in storytelling than a complete narrative, it is heartwarming to see the kids light up as they work together to create art out of their hardship.
A unique hybrid wherein fact is projected through a prism of fiction as both a mechanism to educate outsiders and heal from within.
The approach certainly makes Liyana unique, but be aware that it gives you a glimpse and not the full picture of these kids.
Two films in one, each unfolding with subtlety, sensitivity and strength. A wondrous accomplishment perched between the click of the light and the start of the dream, "Liyana" is one of 2017's best documentaries.
