The debut feature of avant-garde veteran (and Ohio-raised) Jennifer Reeves combines elements of experimental, narrative, and documentary techniques to create a truly lyrical example of personal storytelling.
In The Time We Killed, Reeves burrows into the perspective of a reclusive woman (poet Lisa Jarnot) who tries to ignore the world outside of her New York apartment. But images from the past and current world events (from 9/11 to the war in Iraq) cause her to confront and fight her growing agoraphobia. Shot on a mix of 16mm and digital video, the brilliantly textured film has achieved extraordinary acclaim for such a radically experimental work and has won major prizes at the Berlin and Tribeca Film Festivals. (94 mins.)
