Please note: The screening on Sunday, May 28 at 3:30 PM will be shown with open captions.
“A masterwork of bold originality.” Richard Brody, The New Yorker
“CRITIC’S PICK! A sublime work of art that owes much to Reichardt and Williams’ beautifully synced collaboration.” Manohla Dargis, New York Times
“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
“Quietly extraordinary… The on-the-surface modesty of Showing Up is a kind of sorcery. It’s in the days afterward, when you’ve left its spell and gone back to the world, that its essence is more likely to take shape—a shape you could almost trace with your thumb, as if it were made of clay and not images, air, and feeling.” Stephanie Zacharek, TIME
