DVD with two films by Jackie Raynal
OFFICIAL RELEASE DATE JUNE 17, 2020
One day in New York, I took my linen to a small Chinese laundry. Then I forgot it for a few weeks. When I went back, the laundry wasn’t there anymore, the building had been demolished! I was haunted by the thought of my bedsheets gone forever with the laundry. This experience was the starting point for the New York Hotel script. I wanted to write and make this film to show how everything is transient over there. Things change all the time and are immediately replaced, much quicker than in Europe. The story stemmed from my own experience and impressions as a foreigner. It’s a comedy-drama.
-Jackie raynal, Libération
Hotel New York can be seen as a description of a fight; the fight of an immigrant with her new city and the fight of a filmmaker with her desire to make films within precarious boundaries. In Hotel New York Jackie Raynal plays and wins.
-Cahiers du Cinéma
Raynal shows a New York... that usually never gets on the screen, and the storytelling is so swift, so pared down, and economical that Raynal can pack more into one hour than many filmmakers can into two.
