Kelly Reichardt/Oregon filmmaker

December 15th, 2008 by Anne Richardson · No Comments · Oregon filmmaker

Kelly Reichardt became an Oregon filmmaker when she made Old Joy in 2006. She repeated the feat in 2008 with Wendy and Lucy, her second project with writer Jonathan Raymond, producer Neil Kopp, and executive producer (and newly minted Oregonian) Todd Haynes.

Wendy and Lucy was the result of a close back and forth collaboration between Raymond, who moonlights as an editor at Plazm, and Reichardt.

From an in depth interview with Reichardt at indiewire:

Reichardt and Raymond decided that they were going to have a character “with some ambition to better herself and enough spirit that we could play on the mythology of going West.”

This puts Reichardt’s tale of a single woman traveling with her dog squarely within the filmmaking tradition started by James Cruz and a cast of hundreds in  The Covered Wagon (1923).
