Reviews

IT CAME FROM A PLACE OF DEEP, PERSONAL STRUGGLE; REACHED FOR THE PROFOUND; AND OPENED A WORLD THAT I HADN'T KNOWN. THE UNDERWATER CINEMATOGRAPHY WAS IMPRESSIVE.
~ Billy Shebar | Documentaries Juror, Ridgefield Independent Film Festival

I REALLY LIKE THE DUAL JOURNEY OF ELLEN FACING HER PERSONAL FEARS AND CHALLENGING HERSELF AS AN ARTIST
~ Sean Cross | Co-Founder and Director, Vail Film Festival

EPIPHANY IS PERSONAL, POWERFUL AND DIRECT. THIS FILM SHARES A RARE INTIMACY ABOUT REALIZATION AND THE REALITY OF THE SEA AS A THREAD OF LIFE AND LOVE WITHIN A FAMILY.
~ David Doubilet and Jennifer Hayes | Contributing Photographers, National Geographic

THIS STORY IS SO INSPIRING AND HEARTFELT
~ Jim and Jamie Dutcher | Filmmakers, Founders of Living with Wolves

A PROFOUNDLY MOVING TALE THAT WILL MAKE YOU LOVE PEOPLE AND SHARKS IN EQUAL MEASURE
~ Mark Rovner | CEO at Sea Change Strategies

I WAS COMPLETELY BLOWN AWAY BY EPIPHANY, SUCH A PURE, TRUE AND WONDERFUL STORY, STRAIGHT FROM THE HEART
~ Dirk Mertens | Director at Visit Flanders

WE TOUGHT IT WAS AN INTERESTING AND PROFESSIONALLY MADE FILM
~ Howard and Michele Hall | National Geographic and IMAX Filmmakers; 7-time Emmy Award winners
