Jackie Raynal: Screening and Conversation
Wednesday 27 January 2016

Best known for her elliptical feature length film Deux Fois (1968), screening every Wednesday within ‘The Inoperative Community’, Jackie Raynal was also the editor of a number French new wave films, including Éric Rohmer's La Collectionneuse (1967). 

Extending ‘The Inoperative Community’ Wednesday screening programme, which features Deux Fois and two other Zanzibar productions, a one-off screening of Raynal’s rarely seen New York Story (1981) will be followed by a conversation between Raynal and curator Dan Kidner, exploring her varied career. 



Jackie Raynal (b. 1940, France) worked as a film editor in Paris in the 1960s. She moved to New York in 1975 where she became programmer at Bleecker Street Cinema. She continued to make films and appeared in a number of others including Yvonne Rainer’s The Man Who Envied Women (1985). She lives and works in Paris and New York.
