Jackie Paré  Director/Producer

Jackie spent over a dozen years as a reporter and writer at Fortune magazine, where she honed her skills as a visual storyteller. When she took up bridge, she brought that same eye to the bridge table and discovered a rich and complex world worth documenting. Her directorial credits include a film on another group of passionate obsessives—tap dancers. TAP OR DIE had a successful run on the festival circuit and is distributed worldwide by Alexander Street Press.
