Faculty Reviews

“A highly entertaining, frequently hilarious, sometimes sobering look at single motherhood through the autobiographical prism of the talented documentarian Nina Davenport. The film should be required viewing for any woman contemplating having her child on her own, and highly recommended viewing for the rest of us.”
- Ross McElwee, Professor, Harvard University

“By turns heart-breaking and hilarious, First Comes Love mines the complexity of  the ties that persist in binding us, even as adults, to our families of origin, shaping our notions of self-worth and achievement, gender roles and belonging. In so doing, the film presents an unconventional, unforgettable, utterly 21st-century alternative to the conventional models of heterosexual marriage and parenthood.”
~ Caroline Weber, Associate Professor, Barnard College

First Comes Love is brave autobiographical filmmaking that invents new cinematic strategies for reflecting upon the messiness of making babies, the complexities of intimacy, and the many threads of love that parenthood weaves. Students in film studies, cultural studies, and gender studies have much to learn from Davenport’s work”
~ Jann Matlock, Co-Organiser The Film Studies Space, Senior Lecturer, Univ. College London

“Unexpectedly self-effacing and brave, Davenport’s many-layered film explores the miraculous and often quiet bonds of love that give rise to children, to new generations, and to powerful works of art.”
~ Karen Underhill, Assistant Professor, University of Illinois at Chicago

“An extraordinary classroom experience…the film is moody, thoughtful, outrageous, and wonderfully poignant as it closely observes the nature of love, friendship, and family. It is a film with as much heart and narrative intelligence as any I have seen in years.”
- Robb Moss, Professor, Harvard University
