“Brutal and beautiful, melancholy and joyous, ‘Supa Modo’ is simultaneously crushing and uplifting.” – Brent McKnight, Seattle Times
“I’m glad movie theaters are dark because I ugly-cried my way through all 74 minutes of ‘Supa Modo.’ I straight-up bawled my eyes out.” – Brent McKnight, Seattle Times
“The film is buoyed by the effervescence of young actress Waweru and a story that will leave your heart glowing long after you’ve watched it. Warning: you might also shed a few tears by the end.” – Grethe Kemp, City Press
