"This is a film that explores the distance between the victim and her voice, the fragility of human emotions that both provoke and hinder positive change, and the unbelievable resilience of a woman willing to sacrifice herself to play the media game that is modern advocacy."
The film, director Marilyn Ness says, addresses "the most challenging questions facing police, citizens and the leaders tasked with protecting them."
"Instead of going with the magical, we went with the realism in our cinematic language."
"'Hold the World' is an extraordinary next step in how we can communicate and educate people about experiences they wouldn't usually have access to in the real world."
"We wanted to tell a story set in Berlin, 1977, and we wanted to make a film from that era as if we were there."
"I think it is important that cinema also remains connected to the real world, tries to address it unflinchingly. I think it's part of cinema's mission."
