Press

  • Kenneth Turan, L.A. Times
    “Some documentaries just make you feel good about the world and the people in it and 'La Source' is definitely one of those."
  • Stephanie Murrey, Washington Post
    "Patrick Shen's artfully shot documentary.."
  • Huffington Post
    "Directed by Patrick Shen and narrated by the lovely Don Cheadle with music scored by Sigur Ros, LaSource is cut from exceptional talent."
  • ComingSoon.net
    “A really beautiful movie that I could totally see getting into the conversation around Oscar time.”
  • Steve Pond, The Wrap
    “Fascinating and affecting.”
  • IndieWire
    “an uplifting story of humanitarianism and development stemming from the local level."
  • Reel Georgia
    "(****) 'La Source" is a real life fairytale, where a once hopeless romantic ideal catches fire and ultimately, the dream comes true."
  • Dan Schindel, Current Movie Reviews
    "I’ve seen this movie twice, and there were tears and cheers both times."
  • Cynthia Fuchs, PopMatters
    "This film offers terrific images that allude to internal states, loneliness and worry, resolve and poise."
  • Scott Wold, Paste Magazine
    "...one has to be the most dedicated of cynics to remain unmoved.."
