"Social environmentalist filmmaker Andy Spitz’s work explores the gendered dimensions of parenting/carework, environmental issues, sexual and gender violence against refugees, varied aspects of refugee life, migration, women’s interactions across race and class, sexual identities, the difference age makes as well as returning various times to the textures of South African xenophobia. Spitz’ social justice commitment is laid bare in her consistent exploration of shifting intersectionalities in order to provoke questions about power."
