Locarno 2020 – For the Future of Films will open with First Cow, the latest film from Kelly Reichardt, who will also be one of jurors.
First Cow (2019)
NAME OF FILM: FIRST COW
DIRECTOR(S): Kelly Reichardt
STARRING: John Magaro, Rene Auberjonois, Dylan Smith
GENRE: Drama Film
SYNOPSIS: Kelly Reichardt once again trains her perceptive and patient eye on the Pacific Northwest, this time evoking an authentically hardscrabble early 19th-century way of life. A taciturn loner and skilled cook (John Magaro) has traveled west and joined a group of fur trappers in Oregon Territory, though he only finds true connection with a Chinese immigrant (Orion Lee) also seeking his fortune; soon the two collaborate on a successful business, although its longevity is reliant upon the clandestine participation of a nearby wealthy landowner’s prized milking cow. From this simple premise Reichardt constructs an interrogation of foundational Americana that recalls her earlier triumph Old Joy in its sensitive depiction of male friendship, yet is driven by a mounting suspense all its own. Reichardt shows her distinct talent for depicting the peculiar rhythms of daily living and ability to capture the immense, unsettling quietude of rural America.
