This distinction marks the recognition of the French Republic for Jennifer Roth’s strong commitment to the French-American film cooperation and her brilliant artistic skills. She has shown an unfailing dedication which has resulted in the success of her collaboration with French filmmakers and actors such as Vincent Cassel in Black Swan (2010), Mathieu Amalric and Arnaux Desplechin, and as scenarist and director in Blood Father (2016) and in Jimmy P.: psychotherapy of a Plains Indian (2013). These two last films were nominated for the Cannes Festival.
