Autumn's Eyes
(DVD)

DIRECTED BY - Gabriel Noble, Paola Mendoza


AUTUMN'S EYES is a compelling documentary about a 3-year-old girl who tries to navigate through the harsh reality of severe poverty, her teenage mother's incarceration and looming foster care. Charming, obedient, and unable to fully comprehend the severity of her environment, Autumn is shielded from her own reality. Caught between the innocence of childhood and the growing necessity to be an adult, she represents hope to a family of women caught in the cyclical web of abuse, incarceration and poverty.

Press

"Mendoza and Noble's fine personal documentary looks at three generations of women in poverty from the perspective of Autumn Collier, a clever and observant 3-year-old girl in Jersey City. It is at heart a kind and sensitively filmed story of a little girl longing to reunite with her mother, and vice versa." -- Marrit Ingman, Austin Chronicle

"Audience members will remember Autumn more than they'll remember facts on poverty... ultimately, Autumn's adversity can't possibly be justified -- whether folks blame her caregivers or government, or both, they'll all agree that something must be done so children like her can have a chance at life." - Laura Kyle, EFilmCritic.com
