Global market expert Rachel Okine: are our feature films dead?

Rachel Okine is observant, strategic and numerate. Can she harness the energy of a screen generation in its prime?

Rachel Okine is about to become the managing director of Aquarius Films. She previously had an excellent history with Hopscotch and eOne before she landed a gig in Paris as vice president, international productions and acquisitions for Studiocanal, and then a similar job at STX Entertainment in London.
