Critical Acclaim

Mulvad’s film is one of the most absorbing dramas of the year. That it’s real only makes it’s an object of further fascination, fear, and raw hope.

Kate Erbland, IndieWire

Love Child is an inherently touching story that adds a poignant dimension to the refugee story with the theme of survivor's guilt. Every story is unique and every one of them is vital.
