ReFocus: The Films of Kelly Reichardt

Edinburgh University Press

Referencing Laura Mulvey, Andre Bazin and Andrew Sarris, this chapter discusses auteur characteristics and explores how Kelly Reichardt is contributing to a definition of feminist avant-garde cinema through her production methods, content, and form. Reichardt offers a 21st century alternative to traditional mainstream cinematic ideologies and her filming style politicizes her cinematic form. While discussing differences between Hollywood and independent filmmaking practices, this chapter also posits alternatives to mainstream cinematic pleasure.

Keywords:   Feminist avant-garde cinema, Independent Film, Cinematic Pleasure, Hollywood, Auteur Theory, Andre Bazin
