Capital Celluloid 2017 - Day 63: Sat Mar 4

River of Grass (Reichardt, 1994): BFI Southbank, NFT3, 2.30pm


A chance to see a rare screening of Kelly Reichardt's first film, plus a Q&A with the director. Here are the details of the season devoted to her work, including her new movie Certain Women.

Chicago Reader review:
A canny, contemporary portrait of shiftlessness, this adept first feature (1993) by American independent Kelly Reichardt (Wendy and Lucy), set in the Florida Everglades, is about people so bored they jump at the chance to go on the lam—taking off even before they've committed a crime. Reichardt has an original sense of how to put together a film sequence and an effective way of guiding her cast of unknowns through an absurdist comedy of errors.
Jonathan Rosenbaum

Here (and above) is the trailer.
