Still: First Cow
Filmmaker and screenwriter Kelly REICHARDT (1964, USA) grew up in Miami and obtained her MFA from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. Her debut feature River of Grass (1995) was nominated for the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance Film Festival and was listed by several critics as best film of the year. Due to a lack of financing, Reichardt continued shooting Super-8 short films instead, only to return to the feature format 12 years later with Old Joy (2006). This became the first American film to win the Tiger Award at IFFR. Reichardt continued to win prizes and earned major nominations with her subsequent films, including two Golden Lions, a Golden Bear and an Un Certain Regard nomination. Reichardt is known for her minimalist style of filming with a strong emphasis on mood and atmosphere.
