Kelly Reichardt’s snowball has steadily been rolling down the mountain picking up more and more discerning cinema fans and festival regulars over the years with critically acclaimed and award-winning films like Wendy and Lucy, Meek’s Cutoff and Certain Women. We are delighted to be screening her acclaimed First Cow, which wowed audiences at Telluride and Berlin Film Festivals.
Two travellers, on the run from a band of vengeful hunters in the 1820s Northwest, dream of striking it rich – but their tenuous plan to make their fortune on the frontier comes to rely on the secret use of a wealthy landowner's prized dairy cow. With their scheme landing somewhere between honest ingenuity and pure grift, renowned filmmaker Kelly Reichardt finds a graceful and deeply moving origin story of America in their unlikely friendship and fragile life at the margins.
