Jess (18) and Moss (12) are second cousins who have spent their summers together since either of them can remember. Without immediate families that they can relate to, and lacking friends their own age, all they have is each other. Through a series of memories and vignettes, ''Jess + Moss'' recounts the events of the last summer they shared together. Shot entirely on location with a variety of expired and often degraded film stocks, ''Jess + Moss'' captures the evocative and haunting character of the dark fire tobacco fields of rural Western Kentucky.

Wonderful Film
This was such a sweet little film. Have been back from Sundace for a week. This is the movie that has floated to the top in the surface in my mind. The story was beautiful and the cinematography made you taste and smell- from the verdant green moss jars, the dilapidated house, to the expansive tobacco fields that they played in. You hate it to end and want to know what happened later for these innocents. They gave out view finders (with actual pieces of the film in them) after the screening- tiny buttons too. Sarah Hagan and Austin Vickers were on hand afterward -as well as Clay Jeter. I felt like I had witnessed something perfect and good.
