Review of Here There is No Moon (European version 31:54)

A pleasant ride through troubled minds. Lots of voices saying powerful things. Well scored, perfect music to guide our emotional journey. Can hear the great energy that went into editing this piece; touched on many of the themes/topics that circle around the topic. A shorter version might get a national airing.
I didn’t connect with anyone however, seemed more of a reporter’s microphone that keeps a slight distance—we are only Hearing these stories, just an inch from feeling them. Liked the exploration of literature and performance readings, but feels, to me, a little jarring: a then/now? actor/ tape? shock. Liked the 911 tape sounds in the background, a reminder of the chaos. Beautifully edited layering of sounds and voices. Don’t need the PSA at the end, that can be done by someone inside the piece.
