Todd Haynes- filmmaker
"Vanessa Renwick was a powerful influence on me in my twenties -- here is a woman
who has taught herself how to make movies, following her own rules about what movies
can be and creating them in ways that are personal, organic, and sometimes wildly risky.
Her body of work is substantial and important, and radiates with love and anger and sense
of real joy in the gritty specifics of life (and death) on Earth."
Miranda July- filmmaker
“Vanessa Renwick has a wanderer’s soul. She will never be tamed. Freedom can never do
more than spend itself searching for itself. Vanessa’s seeking, unsatisfied kind of freedom
will thus never reach the end of the road. But her movies are not only about herself, or
about the borders and patterns she sees. She gives love and recognition to the strivings of
other outlaws. The result is a rare public spiritdness.”
