Over the course of six features, Kelly Reichardt has established herself as one of American cinema’s sharpest observers of place and character. Beautifully attuned to the in-between moments of everyday life, her films such as OLD JOY, WENDY AND LUCY, and MEEK’S CUTOFF portray the journeys and struggles of outsiders and dreamers with an eloquent minimalism in which stillness speaks volumes. Reichardt sat down with critic April Wolfe for this conversation, in which she discusses her working relationship with frequent collaborator Michelle Williams, the challenges and rewards of shooting on location, and how her films achieve a delicate balance of the personal and political.
