Reviews and Festivals
"Eye-opening... Sosa-Sims successfully combats the stereotypical portrayal of 'the outspoken and opinionated woman in politics' by showcasing these three vastly different and complex characters who just so happen to belong to the same gender. This documentary provides a wonderful example of well-crafted, organized, and effective storytelling that any aspiring filmmaker could learn from... Provides audiences with a variety of learning opportunities and would be a great asset to a variety of academic curriculums."
— Video Librarian
"Recommended. Offering a look at some of the things that women in politics must endure is valuable, especially in a time when women's rights are being eroded... The reality of the documentary is what makes it successful. Nothing is couched in platitudes. These women understand how bad things are, and they have to work within a broken system in order to effect change."

"With the recent surge of women in politics, director Chloe Sosa-Sims' timely feature debut focuses on three political stars in three countries."
— Hot Docs
"Sosa-Sims knows [that possessing the XX chromosome doesn't guarantee progressive politics]. She wisely avoids suggesting a woman is only one thing by presenting three complex characters. See how they fare inside the system."
— POV Magazine
"Compelling viewing... Balanced, insightful and entertaining, Sosa-Sims' doc illustrates the double standards that exist in politics, and tips its hat to the hardworking women willing to challenge the status quo."
— Movie Pie
"Great, behind-the-scenes look at women in politics over the course of a few years, and the particular abuse they face... An entertaining look at the game of politics in the US, UK, and Canada."
— CIUT / Cultural Mining
"The film's strength is when it focuses on each woman and lets each woman tell us their passion. It lets us into that space where we get to feel that passion."
— Barbara Goslawski, Regent Radio
"Sosa-Sims must be commended for successfully achieving a sense of balance without passing judgement on any government ideologies... Presents these three politicians with honesty, clarity, and respect... Hunting in Packs will appeal to the political junkies and illuminate those who are looking for a unique perspective."
"Hunting in Packs offers up an engaging and fast-paced introduction to these three politicians."
— The Joy of Movies
"A portrait of three determined and unfazed women, who are shown being derided and undermined. The strive to persevere and effect some measure of change for their constituencies."
— In the Seats
"Three bold and non-conforming female politicians from Canada, the UK, and America advocate for vastly different ideologies and agendas, but they share a common fight on their way to success: upending the political establishment."
