What the Critics say

Herman Eloff quote iconFor those outside the community it will be an insightful look at the conservative side of this extremely close-gated group’s most inner-workings. The Harvesters is a frightfully beautiful coming-of-age story that bravely dares to escape the confines of its own subject matter – making it a must-watch.
