THE TIME WE KILLED (2004, 16mm, Black and White) is a lush black & white experimental feature that portrays the life and imaginings of a writer unable to leave her New York City apartment. Robyn Taylor tries to comprehend and fight her growing agoraphobia by looking into her own past and confronting the world events of the present (from a murder-suicide next door to the war in Iraq). Robyn's obsessive ruminations threaten to drive her deeper into the solitude of an illusory world, until a personal encounter with death prompts her to leave the safety of home once again.

Jennifer Reeves is a New York-based filmmaker whose films have shown all over the world from the Berlin, Sundance, Vancouver, London, Toronto, New York, Seoul, and Rotterdam International Film Festivals to the Robert Flaherty Seminar, Princeton University, the Sundance Channel, and the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
