Clever and uncompromising, this spoken-word tour de force recalls the events of the Montreal massacre at L'Ecole Polytechnique on December 6, 1989, making a bold statement for the abolishment of violence against women

There is a terrible beauty to this short, moving film. I marveled at the woman's grace and passion as she moved through her dance routine, a grace and beauty rendered poignant knowing the terrible events of that day. Having seen this a few times now, I've come to realize the director's intent: I think she wants us to defiantly celebrate life and love, even in the face of horror. Kudos, Ms. Mumford for your inspired work.

Powerful and moving, and a wonderful format with which to treat the message(s).
