No masterpiece, but a portrait worthy of the extraordinary woman it salutes.

Processes are illuminated, dedicatory ceremonies shown, honorary degrees conferred, but the carefully un-political woman does not emerge as a personality beyond a wall of concentration.

An incisive documentary portrait of a gifted sculptor and architect whose simple and elegant work has left its mark on these times.

Audience Reviews for Maya Lin: A Strong Clear Vision

An exceptional film about an extraordinary woman. Mock engages the viewer like few documentary directors can (though most try). Very emotional and more than a little eye-opening, especially the reaction many people had to Lin's ethnicity (she's an Asian woman who designed the Vietnam Memorial Wall, something several people found unacceptable, which of course is petty and small-minded). Highly recommended.
