This chapter presents an interview with American filmmaker Kelly Reichardt. Reichardt began her career with a number of arresting Super-8 shorts including Then a Year (2001) and Travis (2009). Ode (1999), a reinterpretation of Herman Raucher's Ode to Billy Joe, resulted in a lasting collaboration with musician and actor Will Oldham. Her debut feature River of Grass (1994) is a sun-drenched film noir that was selected by both Film Comment and The Village Voice as one of the most accomplished features of its year. The interview covered topics such as how Reichardt and writer Jon Raymond developed the storyline for Wendy and Lucy (2008); why her shorts and features never contain any extraneous material; and her working relationship with Oldham.

Keywords:   Kelly Reichardt, Will Oldham, Wendy and Lucy, Ode, interviews, film directors, American filmmakers, filmmaking
