"To have Eliane on set both in front of and behind the camera is a truly unique and exciting experience. She is incredibly reliable, and her sense of humor, energy, and enthusiasm are sure to lift the morale of any production. "

"Ms. Lima explores veiled human psyche and transforms it to vivid moving images, creating a very personal parlance full of double entendres. She is a consummate filmmaker."
"There's something hard to place when you see an Eliane Lima photo or film. Where exactly did she take that image of the young girls on the street — the one where one is playing contentedly with a hoop while another looks like she's going to cry in pain? And what exactly is that film about — the one called Djinn that shows a mysterious series of mannequins that seem as alive as the people who stand there in the night air? We aren't really told. And that's how Lima prefers it. She wants the audience to bring their own interpretations, their own feelings, to her imagery. 'When the artist does not give work to us as a finished statement with explanations,' Lima, 45, a Brazilian native, has said, 'a different kind of relationship is created between the images and the audience, switching it from recognition to engagement with the piece...'"

George Kuchar - SFAI, 2010.
