Seven Songs About Thunder 2010, HD, 15min
winner of Best Narrative, Ann Arbor Film Fest
Fake pregnancy, a lost cell phone, a dead body and therapy. Through a series of odd connections three complicated and likable women are tangled together in a tender mess as they learn to be mothers, friends and lovers…..or not.
 
White Trash Girl, trilogy
Part I The Devil Inside 1996, video, 8min
and Part III Law of Desire 1997, video 18min
The monstrous adventures of «White Trash Girl.» Jennifer Reeder acts as the protagonist, a blond Super-Hero and Cyborg figure of a totally different kind: Born as the result of an incestuous rape, flushed down the toilet and raised in a chemical dump, the female outcast struggles for her survival. Scenes of everyday violence are paralleled with scientific imagery on her birth.
 
 Jennifer Reeder films have screened at festivals, museums, and galleries around the world. 
 
Highlights:
 
Viennale
Anthology Film Archive, NY
Kunstverien
International Film Festival Rotterdam
Ann Arbor Film Festival

Artist statement
 
There are millions of little dramas inside me which must come out. Slowly unfolding scenes, sounds, parts, and bytes, personal and ironic, about trauma, coincidence, women and Ohio. My commitment to filmmaking was initiated when I purchased my first camera and is now firmly established through a focus on narrative storytelling and a dedication to the history and future of video. This work is guided by my personal history growing up in the Midwest and conditioned by the technology I use. My practice requires expertise in writing, directing, camera operation and editing and I have learned to anticipate the problems best solved within the constantly evolving field of digital filmmaking.
