THREE-VOLUME SET: The Kartemquin Films Collection: The Early Years - Vols. 1, 2 & 3
“These filmmakers have the ability to penetrate the souls of the people they depict.”
- Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times, 1968
"Vintage artifacts from the bygone heydey of gritty 16mm activist doc-making, when idealism was sky-high, when when film classes made movies out of on-campus crises, and when active protest was doubly worth doing if you were doing it on film... the films fairly pulse with immediacy and consequence."
- Michael Atkinson, Sight & Sound, 2011.
