“A quiet marvel of a documentary...” - The New Yorker

“Astute and absorbing … 'Maineland' takes up a large and complicated set of topics — the global economy, the shifting relations between East and West, the commodification of American education — and addresses them with understated delicacy … I'll keep my fingers crossed for a sequel.” - The New York Times
