Reeves will attend this screening of her short works, among them The Girl's Nervy (1995), Chronic (1996), and Fear of Blushing (2001). Reviewing Chronic, Fred Camper wrote, “This isn't the first film to convey a disturbed mind through a pastiche of visual styles, but Reeves does it effectively and often movingly with a camera that seems both playful and emotionally subjective. An image superimposed on itself suggests divided consciousness; a camera that moves rapidly toward and away from a boy . . . indicates a sexual ambivalence. Spoken texts add another level of ambivalence, the strangely jaunty music still another. The rapidly shifting tones and moods of this work both give it energy and suggest the "unquiet thoughts' of a mind that hasn't found a resting place.”
