From French filmmaker Patrick Jeudy (Marilyn: The Last Sessions) comes another examination of the myth of Kennedy’s Camelot. This time, the film centers around a series of taped conversations featuring the president’s widow, Jackie, conducted mere months after the assassination of her husband. In the conversations, she recounts her history with JFK, beginning to build the myth in the process. Jackie Kennedy has proven to be one of the more charismatic characters in modern American history, and this project could stand out nicely amongst the oncoming onslaught of JFK assassination anniversary commemorative content.
