Edge of America

Seen collectively through the prism of current events, Reichardt’s subtly political films form a prescient lament.

Permeated by a fragile sense of ecological and emotional peril, the deceptively simple narratives can turn on a resonant gesture, an unspoken word or a singular look. The characters, many drawn from the stories of regular writing collaborator Jon Raymond, are America’s wild-eyed ramblers and flinty outsiders; everyday folk hobbled by loneliness, isolation and monotony.

She maps landscapes – suburban Florida, the velvety forests and rocky plains of Oregon, small-town Montana – as living, breathing entities. Her wide-shots, and elongated pans create a vastness and a sense of distance between aspirations and reality, especially when framing her female characters. Reichardt’s most recent film, Certain Women (p8), won LFF’s Best Film Award and was voted 4th in 2016’s Sight & Sound Critics’ Poll – just two more reasons to discover or revisit her intimate epics.

Certain Women will screen with a Q&A with Kelly Reichardt on Friday 3 March 18:00, and River of Grass will screen with a Q&A on Saturday 4 March 14:30.
