On a  weekend day like any other, the simple but lovingly prepared meal a  young woman makes for friends 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. The first Reverse Shot film production, Feast of the Epiphany is both a formally ingenious docu-fictional diptych and an uncommonly  sensitive, unified rumination on the ways people form and choose  communities, collaborations, and support groups in the face of hardship,  labor, and loss.

In person: Michael Koresky, Jeff Reichert, and Farihah Zaman.

Feast of the Epiphany requires an openness rarely asked of an audience, and it prescribes a solution to suffocating individualism.

- Joshua Encinias, MUBI Notebook

Feast of the Epiphany continually surprises and works to innovate the viewer’s understanding  of what 'narrative' cinema can communicate... A conscious, courageous  attempt to recalibrate notions of society and belonging.

- Ryan Swen, The Film Stage

The particular way the movie moves from its first to second half is so smart and thoughtful that I was momentarily dazed... Feast of the Epiphany interrogates otherwise  implicit economic factors normally embedded into narratives with no  interest in the larger systemic ramifications.

- Vadim Rizov, Filmmaker Magazine

The conceit is entrancing .. The more one spends time in the company of Feast of the Epiphany the more it develops into a tantalizing portrait of both the  fascinating realities behind people’s day-to-day existences and of the  role food plays in fostering communion with friends, colleagues and the  larger natural world.

- Nick Schager, Variety

A film whose formal experiments offer the viewer the abundant food for  thought promised by the title . . . By pivoting on a seemingly  incidental element of everyday life to look at where our food literally  comes from, Feast of the Epiphany becomes a political prompt, reminding  us to consider the origins of our consumables and the processes and  structures that shape them.

- Mark Asch, The Village Voice
