Reichardt recently premiered her latest film, Certain Women, at Sundance, where it was picked up by IFC for U.S. distribution and Sony for worldwide release. It reunites her with Williams and also features Laura Dern and Kristen Stewart. The director has done well for herself and grown much since she made River of Grass.
She expresses a sort of mixed nostalgia of the restoration of her first film, finally admitting the best part about it may be its documentation of a North Miami that no longer exists.
“Larry Fessenden and I did a commentary on the DVD,” she says, “and we watched it without sound, and I still haven’t seen it with sound, but it did seem like such a lifetime ago. We had such bad memories. We were like those two old Muppet guys in the balcony: ‘What did we do? We did what?’ And I think there are still parts of Miami that probably don’t exist anymore, so that part of it is interesting.”

The film boasts something of an indie-horror all-star cast, one which also includes Noah Segan (Some Kind of Hate), Matt Mercer (the Contracted films), Jeremy Gardner (The Battery), Brian Morvant (Darling, Pod), actor-editor Josh Ethier (Almost Human), actor-director Larry Fessenden (Feast), and John Speredakos (House of the Devil) as the aforementioned madman.
