"Cinéma-vérité is a cinema not of mere observation but of immersive engagement. It fuses investigation with self-revelation, presence with performance—and, above all, it turns its participants into self-aware performers, both behind and in front of the camera. The Film Forum series displays the first wave of cinéma-vérité in its vast variety.”
– Richard Brody, The New Yorker
