  • A poignant documentary about the transformative power of art.

  • "The Barefoot Artist" is an engaging portrait of Lily Yeh, a Chinese emigre to the U.S. who has made her major imprint creating collaborative art with residents in areas torn by war, poverty and other hardships.

  • There is much healing in "The Barefoot Artist," Glenn Holsten and Daniel Traub's fascinating documentary portrait of the artist Lily Yeh.

    December 4, 2014 | Full Review…
  • The film skips around from time and place, a handful of transitions are smooth and natural while others don't fare nearly as well, and the effect is choppy and unrefined.

    December 5, 2014 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • A remarkably restrained and intuitively beautiful portrait of the relationship between art, its audience and the sadness of both its inspiration and its creator.

    December 5, 2014 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • There's some powerful material in The Barefoot Artist, but we're presented with only a cursory and unsatisfactory glimpse of it.
