Ariela on BLOWIN’ UP (2018) Tribeca 2018
The judge is great and makes sure that she is clear and makes sure the women understand their options. The documentary spends a lot of time with one of the counselors of GEMS and her interactions with the women.
I liked this documentary. However, I had some issues with it. I would have liked to have heard more about GEMS and what they do (I do plan to google to find out more). I also was hoping there would be a “where are they now” part at the end about these women, but maybe it’s too soon to do this. Lastly, I would have liked to have heard more of the stories of these women. They did include one, but I would have liked to have learned more.
