Student reviews:

"I think this was an incredible and dynamic documentary. It provided much more historical context than I anticipated but rightfully so. It really put in perspective for me how prominent and engrained the man-made concept of race is in today's America. It most definitely tugged at my heart strings and called me to think, listen, and talk more about some of these ongoing issues/challenges." - Bella

"This documentary really shows how identity politics negatively affects the people and the culture of America." - Waymond

"This was very eye-opening and interesting. I never would think about filling out the race box on an application but the impact it makes is literally crazy." - Carlie

"I appreciated that Eli focused on the micro-level. He wanted to communicate the importance of the individual and so he asked the individual questions. I also like how it was about Jack and June, and not so much about Eli himself." - Natalie

"I think the documentary allowed me to have a different perspective on races. I have never thought about what being multiracial meant and about how people can just label you as naive for not identifying with one particular race." - Josiane

Attendee reviews:

"A truly fascinating and touching film about the state of affairs of identity politics in America today..." - Smock Media

"I never thought of race that way - the film really put everything into perspective." - Autumn

"It was a really powerful documentary, the way it shows how people use race for power or defer to its power." - Vick

"The documentary showed your family's humanity against an America fixated on skin color. That juxtaposition really showed how we really need to be better." - Brett

"I thought this film was going to be biased but it was not at all. You hear all sides of the argument and that's what made it powerful, fascinating, unfiltered." - Amera
