Review of future June by Clarence Tsui in The Hollywood Reporter

"Quietly contemplative, powerfully insightful and thoroughly humanist, ...Future June poses a difficult question about the contradictions in the discourse of modern-day economic development. ... Holding back on judging her subjects, Ramos lays bare how flawed economic strategies and their corresponding social values seep into the hearts and minds of everyone concerned, be it the privileged yuppies or the fiery street warriors. Uncertainty certainly looms ahead, but Future June offers a enlightening and gripping view of humans grappling with the forces at work on their lives in a sometimes messy, often contradictory present."
