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
