Kelly Reichardt's newly restored feature debut
, River of Grass (1994) is playing on MUBI worldwide from August 5 - September 4, 2016.
Kelly Reichardt's debut feature, River of Grass, sees two lost souls coming together after a crime that may not have happened. Yet, after embarking on a road trip, the pair ultimately find themselves moving nowhere in particular. Now an accomplished filmmaker, Reichardt still refuses to re-watch any of her movies. She does however recall the driving force behind her debut: Florida's landscape and the desire to flip the road movie genre on itself.
"It’s a genre film, it’s a road movie, and so it was sort of the idea that the road movie had played itself out—how could the genre be deconstructed?" she told Monocle 24's Ben Rylan in a special edition of The Cinema Show.
