Interview: Calvin Reeder and Lindsay Pulsipher (The Oregonian)

Written with Lindsay Pulsipher in mind (the thesp stars as a beautiful farm girl who wakes up from a car accident, only to find herself wandering through a strange, confusing, nightmarish vision of the Northwest she barely recognizes) there’s a lot to say about the this unconventional film. Not plot driven and following more of an emotional arc, the 2011 Sundance Film Festival selected The Oregonian might be inspired by Andrei Tarkovsky’s Stalker.

Currently lensing his sophomore feature The Rambler, which is based on his short, Calvin Reeder’s feature directorial debut will be receiving its theatrical premiere with a week-long run, at the reRun Gastropub Theater starting on Friday, June 8th (Factory 25). We got to sit down with Pulsipher and discuss her career path and how she embarked on this character’s journey while Reeder detailed inspiration, style and the process. Interview was conducted by Sean Glass in Park City back in 2011.
