“It’s one of the reasons I love documentary. A filmmaker embedding herself with a talented group of collaborators in an area that allows me to come into a world I would normally have no access to. Expressing their lives in a way that’s truly accessible.
“Seeing [Tanya, the film’s main subject] navigate certain scenes and certain days, being filmed… I was just a human being watching something all women navigate: taking other people’s feelings in account without first taking your own into account. Seeing that on her face was really, really powerful.”
