This documentary is long overdue, beautifully conceived and executed, and sincerely appreciated.
— Gail Buckland, Distinguished Visiting Professor, The History of Photography, The Cooper Union

The cohesive narrative arc of your film is moving and enlightening–and utterly captivating…history at its best.
— Julia Van Haaften, Founding Curator, New York Public Library Photography Collection

I loved your film about the trail left by photography over the last hundred years. When I watched ORDINARY MIRACLES, there were all my idols… it was all abeautiful and exciting memory.
— D.A. Pennebaker, Filmmaker

…an affectionate portrait of the organization that was to photography what the Group Theater was to the stage. What the Photo League inspired in the 1930s-40s was not only aesthetically rich, but politically crucial–namely an inclusive and tolerant sensibility…The photos are terrific.
— Annette Insdorf, Professor, Graduate Film Program, Columbia University School of the Arts and Director of Undergraduate Film Studies
