Summary: Working within a broken criminal justice system, a team of rebel heroines work to change the the way women arrested for prostitution are prosecuted.

"Blowin' Up offers one of the most hopeful real-world visions of heroic women - from the judge and DAs to the attorneys, social workers, counselors and, not least, the defendants - ever to fill the screen."
- Sheri Linden, Hollywood Reporter
"The movie does have a verdict: It's time to change up the way we police, criminalize, and vilify sex workers without hearing their stories."
- Jude Dry, indieWire
"The characters are riveting and the photography is casually stylish, but the real highlight is the urgency of the work Wang-Breal captures."
- Jason Bailey, Village Voice
