Interview: Filmmaker Jackie Raynal

The Mediascape Blog is proud to present an interview with French filmmaker Jackie Raynal. During a recent visit to UCLA, Mrs. Raynal discussed her pioneering experiences as a female editor working in the postwar French film industry, her collaborations with Eric Rohmer and other New Wave artists, and her career as a director and curator. The interview was conducted by students in the Cinema and Media Studies department and graciously sponsored by Dr. Janet Bergstrom. Special thanks to Shannon O’Kelley, director of the Billy Wilder Theater in Los Angeles, whose presence during the interview immensely enriched the conversation. The interview can be downloaded or listened to below.
