Jessica Ritchey is a writer based in the orbit between Washington D.C. and Baltimore. She credits a VHS copy of "Singin’ in the Rain" as her introduction to a love of movies. She
has written for several web outlets, and can be found watching foreign classics
in rapt silence at the AFI Silver or shouting things with the crowd at B-Fest
on Northwestern’s campus. She believes that high and low culture are illusory
barriers and that all art and storytelling is truly one big never-ending
conversation. She occasionally remembers she has a blog at Sugarbang.
