Jess + Moss

Directed by: Clay Jeter

"A mosaic of pieces that combine to form a quietly shattering whole." – Shane Danielsen, INDIEWIRE

Read the review in the CHICAGO READER here.

Jess, age 18 (Sarah Hagan), and Moss, age 12 (Austin Vickers), are second cousins wiling away the summer on a tobacco farm in Western Kentucky. With no immediate family or friends of their own, they rely on each other for companionship, but their advancing ages and diverging needs begin to pull their relationship apart at the seams. Director Clay Jeter uses degraded film stocks and a dense sound mix to capture the excitement of youth and the fragility of memory so that everyday events take on fully cinematic proportions.
