CinémaTuesdays
Cinema According to Jackie Raynal
April 7, 14, 21, and 28, 2009

For decades, Jackie Raynal has been an influential presence in French and independent cinema. In New York, the beloved cinema houses she founded (the Bleecker Street and the Carnegie Hall) provided essential early exposure to filmmakers like Spike Lee, Jim Jarmusch, and Philippe Garrel. With different guests on hand each week, FIAF now celebrates Raynal’s generous gifts to film as an editor, curator, distributor, and director.


Haydée Politoff

Double Screening
Six in Paris

Paris vu par…

Tuesday, April 7, 2009 at 12:30, 4 & 7:30pm*

Jean Rouch (segment Gare du Nord)
Editor: Jackie Raynal, 1965. Color. 20 min.
With Nadine Ballot, Marcel Gallon, Jean-Michel Rouzière,
and Barbet Schroeder
In French with English subtitles

Edited by Jackie Raynal, Jean Rouche’s Gare du Nord remains an unflinching document on a disintegrating marriage. Please note that Eric Rohmer's Place de l’Etoile which was to be screened as part of Six in Paris will not be screened anymore.

La Collectionneuse

Eric Rohmer, 1967. Color. 89 min.
Editor: Jackie Raynal
With Patrick Bauchau, Haydée Politoff, Daniel Pommereulle,
and Alain Jouffroy
In French with English subtitles

Rohmer’s third moral tale poignantly explores the all-consuming nature of attraction and seduction. Two friends vacationing on the Riviera become rivals in their pursuit of Haydée—a “collector of men”— whose indifference to them enhances her allure.

Spike Lee, 1983. Color. 60 min.
With Monty Ross, Donna Bailey, Stuart Smith,
and Horace Long

Spike Lee’s debut film examines a Brooklyn barbershop in the hands of a new owner. Customers and neighbors—not to mention a gangster using the store as a front—await the change anxiously. Lee’s unmistakable tone and style is in evidence throughout the film. The film was first presented by Jackie Raynal at Bleecker Street Theater.
