    This was at the top of my Hot Docs list because Nanfu Wang's first documentary, Hooligan Sparrow, is a fave of mine.

    I don't know how Wang captures people the way she does, but it is absolutely mesmerizing and poetic. She is a true explorer—genuinely curious about the world and it shows in her documentaries.

    A film that continues to reveal itself and, as it does, the intrigue and interest rise. Wang's filmmaking style is interesting as she places herself right there with her subject, intruding even at times, and asking herself many good questions that challenge what she is doing and where the doc is even going.

    "It took many years of vomiting up all the filth I'd been taught about myself, and half-believed, before I was able to walk on the earth as though I had a right to be here."--JAMES BALDWIN
