Jytte Jensen – Cinema Mourns a Cherished Friend
Something seemed not right on March 18 when MoMA’s veteran film curator, Jytte Jensen, was absent from a group of programmers at the opening of the New Directors/New Films festival. Then the sad news came. Jytte Jensen died this week at 65 after a battle with cancer.

New Directors/New Films (March 18-29)
New Directors/New Films rolls out today with the New York premiere of The Diary of a Teenage Girl, directed and adapted by Marielle Heller from Phoebe Gloeckner’s graphic novel. At Sundance the drama of a young girl’s coming of age in the 1970’s was an overwhelming favorite. And unlike much of this festival’s program, it will surely make it to commercial screens, from Sony Classics.
