American landscapes and narratives of the road are themes that run throughout REICHARDT’s work. Her film, Old Joy, winner of a Tiger Award at the 2007 Rotterdam Festival, is a New Age Western and exploration of contemporary liberal masculinity in the Great Northwest. REICHARDT’s first feature, River of Grass, a sundrenched film noir shot in her hometown in Dade County, Florida, was cited as “one of the best films of 1995” by The Village Voice and Film Comment. Kelly REICHARDT is currently a Visiting Assistant Professor at Bard College.
