Interview: Jennifer Reeder – Knives and Skin

Following her sophomore feature, Signature Move (SXSW ’17) and capping off a remarkably fruitful decade in filmmaking with this neon-coated, Solondz-esque meets Lynchian icing on the cake with the Berlin Intl. Film Festival selected Knives and Skin. With a cast of misfits comprised of precocious teens and deficient adults, Jennifer Reeder treads in subversive waters with a feminist text, a whodunnit that seconds as a soothing nocturnal smoothie of Americana. Knives and Skin was among the quartet of projects featured at the 2018 US in Progress – American Film Festival in Wrocław. Here is my sit-down with Jennifer Reeder.
