Dirs. Michael Koresky, Jeff Reichert, Farihah Zaman. 2018, 80 mins. With Meng Ai, Nikki Calonge, Sean Donovan, Jill Frutkin, Jessie Shelton. In this docu-fictional diptych directed by Reverse Shot editors Koresky and Reichert and contributor Zaman, a young woman lovingly prepares a meal for friends, and the simple gesture takes on unexpected significance. Revelry turns to meditations on mortality, and the tiniest, hard-won gesture of goodness comes from an unexpected party. Night turns to day, and viewers are taken somewhere else entirely―albeit with a lingering dissolve of emotions, ideas, and grace. Feast of the Epiphany is an uncommonly sensitive rumination on the ways people form and choose communities, collaborations, and support groups in the face of hardship, labor, and loss. “A meditative banquet of ideas . . . A fascinating cinematic language that interrogates itself about matters of spontaneity and manipulation, man-made products and earth-given treasures, simplicity and sophistication.” ―Carlos Aguilar, The Los Angeles Times
