"Beautiful, breathtaking... hilarious" - VICE

"But the film also brings in fictional characters – a couple of well-intentioned, but ineffectual, aid workers from Canada (played by Vancouver actors/comedians Kayla Lorette and Aaron Read). Devlin immerses them in this very real tragedy, where they interact with real victims and give the audience some laughs. It sounds bonkers – but it works." - The Globe & Mail
