Interview With Juliette Schrameck, Young Leader '18
Juliette Schrameck , former Managing Director of French group  MK2 Films and French Young Leader ’18 discusses her career in film distribution/production in France and recommends a selection of movies to watch in quarantine:

Q. Could you share some movies that you recommend watching at home? Classic French movies and some from around the world?
Among recent productions, I would definitely recommend Portrait of a Lady on Fire by Céline Sciamma which had fantastic results at the US box office before the theaters closed. Just like Parasite, Portrait is a must-see of the year! You can also try The Whistlers by Corneliu Porumboiu (both films were competing for the Palme d’Or this year and are available on VOD in the US) if you like original, unexpected and offbeat thrillers with lots of humor!

She then specialized in film distribution at the French film school La Fémis, and began working in the theatrical distribution team at Les Films du Losange, the company founded by Eric Rohmer and Barbet Schroeder, before joining the international sales department.
