The Tsugua Diaries

“A work that possesses both the whimsy and fearlessness of a student project and the technical vibrancy of a veteran’s opus.” – NY Times

“The actors’ frayed nerves and hard-won affections—and their cinematic results—reveal their roots in the steadfast artistic purpose and the scary uncertainty of the circumstances that bring them together. – The New Yorker

“The Tsugua Diaries is something like Memento for an age of isolation and listlessness.” – Slant Magazine

“Brilliant. The most accomplished and absorbing film about time spent in lockdown that I’ve seen.”
— The New Yorker
