Dir. Kelly Reichardt
2022, USA, 108 min
A sculptor preparing to open a new show must balance her creative life with the daily dramas of family and friends, in Kelly Reichardt’s vibrant and captivatingly funny portrait of art and craft.
Showing Up feels like a moment of release for the filmmaker, a knowing reflection on past work and artistic growth while leaning in to all the beautiful elements of sound, colour and texture that have come to be expected from her work.
– Caitlin Quinlan, Little White Lies
The art is both the focus of Kelly Reichardt’s personal new film but also adjacent to the larger exigencies of life.
