Pablo Larraín and Stéphane Fontaine Filmed Jackie on KODAK Super 16mm film stocks – KODAK VISION3 500T Color Negative Film 7219 and VISION3 200T Color Negative Film 7213 so that “Jackie” could have the faded, grainy texture required to achieve the 16mm Film Look for a story about the inner psychology of Jackie Kennedy as she battles through traumatic events and consoles her children while trying to delineate her husband’s political legacy and uphold her own dignity.
The saturated, Kodachrome look dominates most of the film in contrast to the more subdued and softer interview sequences. “The White House needed to feel like a shelter compared to all the chaos outside with the assassination,” Cinematographer Stéphane Fontaine said in an interview with Indiewire.
“We didn’t want the movie to look too gritty or too rough. It needed to be elegant.”
