Mavericks: Kelly Reichardt 
Kelly Reichardt has emerged as one of the most distinctive voices in American cinema with films such as Old Joy and Wendy & Lucy. Her latest film, Meek's Cutoff, is set in 1845 on the Oregon Trail and is her first departure from a contemporary setting. Reichardt will appear in this Mavericks discussion to take us behind the scenes of her process, and will be interviewed by Entertainment Weekly critic Lisa Schwarzbaum. Meek's Cutoff will be screened at the Festival in the Contemporary World Cinema programme.
