An Evening with Kelly Reichardt


Kelly Reichardt will discuss her films in a conversation with chief curator David Schwartz that will include clips from all four of her features, including River of Grass, Old Joy, Wendy and Lucy, and her latest film, Meek’s Cutoff, which opens theatrically at Film Forum in Manhattan on April 8. Before the conversation, there will be a rare screening of Reichardt’s short film Ode (1999, 48 mins.), filmed in Super 8, based on Herman Raucher’s novel Ode to Billy Joe, which was inspired by the Bobbie Gentry song about a couple and their forbidden love.
