Jackie editor Sebastian Sepúlveda speaks to Where to Watch about cutting Pablo Larrain's intimate film all about the days leading up and in the immediate aftermath of John F. Kennedy's assasination from the point-of-view of First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy (Natalie Portman).

“We worked all the elements of Greek tragedy that this story has. It is a horror movie; that week is a nightmare, a big trauma,” says Sepúlveda. “That’s why Pablo and I discussed, in the editing, a complex structure of four layers: there’s the interview with a journalist; Jackie organizing the funeral arrangements; Pablo added the White House tour; and the conversation with the priest. It was difficult to work with four layers but we approached it like fragmented pieces of memory. The idea was to do an emotional film; not ‘reality’ but to show what she felt; to be in her mind in this moment of trauma."
