Cineuropa reviews Amá.
"While ‘Amá’ is undeniably beautiful, in the way it’s shot and told, and hauntingly actual, it is not just the power of the film as a work of art that makes it so perfect. It’s how perfectly it fits into the age of #MeToo and the newfound feminism of the Millennials."
"Lorna Tucker's latest documentary is one of the most important films of 2018."
"A passionate insight into an enormous injustice, Amá illuminates the painful human cost of forced sterilizations. Lorna Tucker’s documentary explores just how this horrific scheme was allowed to happen, and the heart-breaking effect it had on the women it targeted."
"Full marks, for bringing this shocking story to the fore, exposing an injustice inflicted on women like Jean who are still waiting for an apology from the federal government. Amá - shocking story of Native Americans' mass sterilisation."
