American Passages works because of its elements of surprise: A scene or a topic comes up and you get into it and then you’re gone again. The challenge was that everything is intertwined yet always new – it’s a ballad of many verses. To keep this up is especially difficult when you’ve got many protagonists and more than one main theme. This applies to the filming and even more to the montage. (Ruth Beckermann)
