  • Visually reconstituting memory in the same fragmented, free-floating way we store it, experimental filmmaker Su Friedrich...offers a break from the simplified 'coming out' story by looking at lesbian childhoods from multiple angles.

    San Francisco Bay Guardian
  • A highly personal and candid film, HIDE AND SEEK inevitably encourages viewers of various sexual orientations to reflect upon the idiosyncrasies of their own childhood and coming-of-age.

    Variety
  • Wherever HIDE AND SEEK has been shown...the response has been tremendous...Friedrich has lit a path for a different kind of filmmaking-and a different kind of filmgoing experience-by challenging her viewers with non-traditional films, that, in spite of their intimate specificity, speak to universal experience.
