"Free Radicals" has been screened in 50 international festivals and distributed theatrically in France, USA and Canada.
"Here is a film that shines with its cast: Hans Richter, Maya Deren, Stan Brakhage, Jonas Mekas, Maurice Lemaître and other “star” experimental filmmakers (mostly Americans, up through the ’70s) parade in majesty. They do so with no false modesty (their candid-ness and confidence are rather surprising, sometimes humorous), and with a clear pleasure at having their turn in front of the camera, to be projected and listened to." - Les Cahiers Du Cinéma
"Free Radicals keeps hope alive that the voice of the ragged and wooly non-conformist might still break through the deafening roar of blockbuster films." - Criterion Cast
"A personal window into the history of experimental cinema, Free Radicals is a beautiful essay from a film community insider: a love letter to experimental cinema and its makers." - Sam Prime
