After making the rounds of libraries and museums, it occurred to me that I should try to make contact with this elusive director, Jacques Rivette, who for most American film students remains a myth. I gathered my courage and even wrote out a brief script in French before I phoned him at home.
I fully expected to get an answering machine on the other end and was prepared to recite my script.

Just imagine my stunned surprise when Rivette actually picked up his phone and answered it that fateful morning!! I spent the next few days preparing notes, writing out questions in French, shopping for a high-powered tape recorder at FNAC, in order to brace myself for the interview with this internationally celebrated director.

The big day finally arrived, and by then, I was overwrought—little more than a bundle of nerves—but ready to go. My friend, Christophe, graciously agreed to accompany me to the interview to provide me with much needed moral support and help with the tape recorder. I insisted that we arrive early and wait actually I had been so nervous on the telephone with Rivette that I was afraid that I might have misunderstood the time. Although it was a very hot summer afternoon, Rivette was formally dressed—in a dark blue jacket that remained on throughout the interview.

Initially, he was courteous and careful. He took his seat across the table from me and was immediately attentive to the subject of our conversation, the films, patiently allowing me to read through the questions that I had painstakingly prepared.

He must have sensed how nervous I was, as he was very gracious and good-humored in his manner toward me, which put me at ease as much as would have been possible that day!! Rivette was engaging and lively as an interlocutor. His raucous laugh was heart-felt and infectious, and by the end of the interview, which lasted several hours, I felt as though I had been chatting with a close friend all along.
Warmest wishes. This treasured memento never fails to invoke that unforgettable afternoon. While Paris nous appartient may not be his best film, those who read my interview with Rivette will know that it is, nonetheless, one of my favorites even though Rivette remains highly critical of it!!
It was during my study of this film in a postgraduate seminar with Professor Maureen Turim that I began to think about and work seriously on Rivette.
