Jennifer Gauthier has curated a mini festival featuring films made by women from all over the world. All are available streaming from various providers. Watch the films on your own, and then tune in to the Zoom discussion to share your thoughts. Tune in for the whole series, or tune in for one film, the discussions promise to be lively and thought-provoking.
This week’s selection…
(Kelly Reichardt, 2013) 2 hrs. [Amazon Prime]
Independent American filmmaker, Kelly Reichardt is known for her quiet, contemplative style, subtle camera work and lovingly rendered natural settings. I first saw her work at the New York Film Festival – her film Wendy and Lucy (2008), about a young homeless woman and her dog is heartbreaking and beautiful. Night Moves focuses on environmental activism – a timely and controversial topic.
Don’t forget the popcorn!
