Accident, MD is the passionate work of a civic-minded filmmaker who, in the midst of a Presidential campaign that was fuelled by outlandishly deceptive claims, channels his bewilderment into action; in presenting the insidious power of political propaganda and its irrational effect, it does more to explain the election of a flamboyantly enraged liar than most daily newspaper accounts.” - Richard Brody, The New Yorker

Accident, MD is not just a short film. It is a critical document about one of the most pressing issues of our time that conveys urgent voices and perspectives to the American public.” - Daniel Ross, PBS/Independent Lens

“As we enter another election season, this film’s snapshot of the political conversation in one all-American town on the eve of the 2016 election feels simultaneously timely and like it comes from another world entirely.” - Cara Cusumano, Tribeca Film Festival Director & Vimeo 2019 “Best of the Year” juror
