"AN EMOTIONAL POWDER KEG ... the film’s a nearly Shakespearean drama, one in which a deeply religious father is forced to choose between sacrilege (taking part in the destruction of his sacred tribal mountain) and feeding his kid" -FILMMAKER MAGAZINE

"It’s really a unique film, opening doors to a world and characters audiences don’t ever see. It’s poetic and emotional and beautifully shot." - Ramin Bahrani (Director of Fahrenheit 451, Man Push Cart, 99 Homes)
"The Blessing is a vital piece of modern Native storytelling. The film has some of the most unique and intimate views of life today on a reservation we’ve ever seen. The filmmakers received unprecedented access to a Navajo family’s personal story. Audiences will enjoy seeing contemporary reservation life today."
-Patsy Phillips (Director of IAIA Museum of Contemporary Native Arts, Santa Fe, NM)
