"Though [Jennifer] Hodge de Silva's 'personality' can be found in what she chose to make films about, the films themselves resist the search for a subjective voice, a personal point of view. [...] However, Hodge de Silva interpreted the grammar of documentary realism and the limits of sponsored films in a way that I would argue is distinct, even personal."
