Alternative Film Guide, June 2008
San Francisco Chronicle Review on 6/15/08 by David Wiegand:
"Melanie McGraw could give filmmaking lessons to some of the other indie directors featured in Frameline. Her extraordinary short, "Pitstop," is one of the highlights of this compilation of lesbian cinema.
It is a simply told story of a young girl, mistakenly left behind at a gas station by her parents, who meets a woman who hand-tools leather.
They have a conversation and entire worlds rush open in our understanding these characters."
SEATTLE LESBIAN & GAY FILM FESTIVAL 2008, BEST SHORT FILM
Quote from the Jury: "The story goes beyond the boundaries of gender identity and sexuality revealing a common human element. The art direction and cinematography enhanced the subtle storytelling and were visually poetic. We liked that the film integrated time and geography as critical elements of the storytelling."
