DAILY Screens  October 16, 2016, by Sean L. Malin
"...Stories of similar complexity came – not coincidentally – from a series of UT-based filmmakers: Rachel Bardin, who shot her ambitious biographical doc “Lavoyger” in gorgeous black-and-white; Joel Fendelman, whose character study “Game Night” observes a ruminant night in the life of a failed athlete; and Lizette Barrera, who with writer Renier Murrillo portrays a near-incestuous family’s confrontation in “Mosca.” These Texas-set projects challenged the pejorative use of the term “student film” with their undeniable visual accomplishments and their unifying sense of profound social concerns.
