Three Films by Jennifer Reeder

Three Films by Jennifer Reeder

“Teen movies that have been rubbed raw and are tender to the touch.”—The Skinny

“Few films are this eloquent about the pangs of adolescence or the intensity of female friendships.”—The Skinny

A Million Miles Away is an ode to the secret language of adolescence… infused with a surreal, mythical atmosphere.”—Dazed

L.A. premiere

Drawing on forms as varied as TV after-school specials, music videos and magical realism, Jennifer Reeder constructs intimate narratives about relationships, trauma and coping. Her latest acclaimed work, Blood Below the Skin, chronicles a turbulent week in the life of three teenage girls, from different social circles, ahead of the school dance. Also on tap are the L.A. debut of A Million Miles Away, a festival circuit favorite in which a distressed substitute teacher and a teen girls’ choir revel in the melancholy of a Judas Priest anthem, and Seven Songs About Thunder, a dark feminist comedy about a mother, her daughter, a liar, and a therapist. 

The Jack H. Skirball Series is curated by Steve Anker and Bérénice Reynaud.
