Critical Response:
"At Friday morning's 'Documentary Shorts' presentation, the audience at MICA's Studio Center got to watch seven short works[...] The films took them on an emotional ride from the silly to the sublime, from the comical to the tragic [, ... including] the oddball humor of the 14-minute 'The Rocket on the Roof,' as a guy furtively, but determinedly, tries to figure out why that rocket is on that roof." - Chris Kaltenbach, The Baltimore Sun
