Q&A with director Charlotte Gainsbourg, moderated by journalist and writer Christina Newland on the occasion of the screening of Charlotte Gainsbourg’s directorial debut, Jane by Charlotte, as part of the French Film Festival UK 2022 at Ciné Lumière.


With a subtle nod to Agnès Varda’s Jane B. for Agnes V. (1988), Gainsbourg crafts an intimate portrait of Jane Birkin, a singer, an actor, an icon and her mother. Through the camera lens, they expose themselves to one another and overcome a shared sense of reserve.
