All Critics (13) | Top Critics (3) | Fresh (12) | Rotten (1)

  • At its intimate best, "Merata" is an embrace and an education, a son's love letter and for cineastes, a celebration of inclusion and voice.

    May 10, 2019 | Full Review…
  • A portrait of an icon of Indigenous cinema as directed by her son.

    Feb 11, 2019 | Full Review…
  • As Miti successfully makes us appreciate his mother's passions and progress, it's strange to see something so personal packaged like a lecture.

    Feb 5, 2019 | Full Review…
  • As Merata shows, Mita's entire life was a fight - one that Hepi continues with this documentary that looks not only to secure Mita's legacy but enlarge it.

    Oct 7, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Despite this being his directorial debut, he appears on initial inspection to be adept at the process.

    Aug 21, 2019 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…
  • The doc's appraisal of [Alanis] Obomsawin's work is appreciated and productive in illustrating how voices like Obomsawin and Mita are still far too rare when they have so much to say.
