To mark the release of Kelly Reichardt’s (Meek’s Cutoff, Certain Women) perceptive and tender new film, BAM is pleased to present a series of thematically and stylistically diverse films, all handpicked by Reichardt herself, that served as her inspiration in creating First Cow. From sensual, earthy portraits of peasant life to empathetic studies of eccentric outsiders to gripping heist thrillers, this program offers multiple windows into a rich new work by this modern master.
