Cinematographer Stephane Fontaine Lenses the Emotional Journey to ‘Jackie’ with Super 16


Directed by Pablo Larrain, Jackie focuses on the shattered state of then 34-year-old Jacqueline Kennedy (played by Oscar favorite Natalie Portman) following the assassination of her husband on November 22, 1963. Overcome with grief, she must confront the unimaginable as she plans her husband’s funeral and ultimately decides how history will remember him forever. Teaming up with the director was Cinematographer Stephane Fontaine. In creating the look, Fontaine shadows the narrative with an unobtrusive camera that blends fact and fiction, depicting Jackie’s public and personal life without apology. No Film School sat down with the cinematographer just before the film’s theatrical release to take us behind-the-scenes of this emotional narrative.
