RFA Presents Indie Film Night: "First Cow"
July 14, 15 & 16, 2020, 5 & 8 PM
Acclaimed director, Kelly Reichardt, trains her perceptive on the Pacific Northwest, evoking an authentic early nineteenth century way of life. A skilled cook has traveled west and joined a group of fur trappers in Oregon Territory and finds true connection with a Chinese immigrant also seeking his fortune. The two collaborate on a successful business dependent upon the clandestine participation of a nearby landowner’s prized cow. From this premise Reichardt constructs a sensitive depiction of male friendship and shows her distinct ability to capture the immense peace of rural America.
