Herman's House

“Conceptually inventive, poetic and original, Herman’s House achieves a great feat in constructing a compelling narrative about a man we never meet and goals that aren’t quite reached… In the end, none can contain this unique and moving story, and we are left with our own imaginations, completely activated by this magnificent film.” Ezra Winton, Art Threat

“As powerful as it is heartrending.” Serena Whitney, Exclaim
