PRESS

"It’s a travesty that this one didn’t make it onto the Oscar’s short list…. [F]raught with socio-political significance, [Yearbook is] also incredibly emotional and leaves any viewer frustrated with the hopelessness of life with surprising inspiration." - Indiewire

"[A] devastatingly emotional, socio-politically steeped love story…. It’s a highly intelligent allegory, characteristic of Britto’s style" - Filmmaker Magazine
