I Am Jackie O
FROM GLAMOUROUS FIRST LADY TO CULTURAL ICON – Entering the American consciousness as the glamorous First Lady who brought youth, culture and sophistication to the White House, Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis became a media obsession after her husband’s assassination – and embodiment of America’s grief. Escaping to the privacy of the Onassis compound in Greece, she eventually returned to New York, reinventing herself as a book editor while establishing control over her own life, finally free from the shadow of powerful men. Exploring the character of a woman living through tragedy in the public eye and remaking her life, I AM JACKIE O follows a legacy that transcends her role as president’s wife and national widow and cements her as one of the most important cultural icons in American history. The film was directed by Anna Tallner and Tanya Maryniak. Original airdate 3/3/2024.
