Jenni Olson is the director of the new film, The Royal Road. She describes the film as a cinematic essay, and it’s structure is simple: patient static shots of urban California landscapes captured on 16 mm film, and a voiceover narration written and spoken by Jenni. In her narration we hear confessional tales of desire and rejection, the history of the Spanish Colonization in California, and musings on everything from butch identity and nostalgia to Alfred Hitchcock’s vertigo.
The Royal Road just started it’s run at Anthology Film Archives in New York City, where it’s playing through November 5th.
