"Stunningly well-made. Denial is that rare documentary that actually shows us change. People and understandings, as well as climate and sexuality, are represented as fluid - messy and disruptive, but life-giving. This is an eco-film where science and technology, personal and political conflict, humility, love, and aesthetic virtuosity forge unexpected and beautiful alliances."
"Dynamic, passionate...Denial wrestles with many of the conditions of contemporary human existence...Revealing and well-informed. Viewers should be aware that the dual narrative of this film is a risky personal narrative of gender transition that reaches well beyond the engineering of energy in our lives. The compilation has a deeply intimate beauty while also reaching well beyond the boundaries of traditional energy documentaries."
"Denial compellingly merges our country's refusal to accept the truth of gender's complexity with our denial about climate change and a failed energy system...The themes of transparency, honesty, compromise, and complexity in relation to gender identity/expression and climate change render this film a perfect fit for courses in environmental justice, women's and gender studies, queer theory, and environmental studies."
"Denial tells exactly the kind of complex, deeply personal story about climate change we need at this moment. It is about a passionate energy expert/activist and the compromises she makes to move a utility toward more sustainable power generation; it is also about her own gender transition and the compromises she makes to negotiate her identity with her family and professional community. The intersection of these two stories is emotionally and politically powerful: how do we deal with change, with denial, and with the fact that many issues - personal and global - may not ultimately be amenable to compromise?"
