Jytte Jensen, who worked for more than 30 years as a film curator at the Museum of Modern Art and most recently served as chair of New Directors/New Films, died Monday night after a prolonged battle with cancer. The news was announced by a museum representative on Monday.

Jensen served on the chair for New Directors/New Films for two years, most recently working alongside the Film Society of Lincoln Center’s Dennis Lim through this January, when her illness prevented her from continuing the job; Mo MA’s Chief Curator of the Department of Film, Rajendra Roy, then took over.

Jensen was also a major advocate for contemporary experimental filmmakers, organizing gallery installations featuring work by Kiarostami, Ken Jacobs, Michael Snow and Ernie Gehr.

Over the course of her career, her publications included “Benjamin Christensen: An International Dane,” “Four Decades of Brazilian Cinema” in the 1999 collection “Cinema Novo and Beyond.” She also contributed essays to monographs on Carl Theodor Dreyer and Tarr as well as interviews and articles for various newspapers.

She would go there when they were still part of the Soviet Union. It was a pretty rarefied world that she felt comfortable in. That’s what I’m going to miss.” Though Jensen had pulled back from many of her programming duties in recent months, she had been working on a retrospective of Brazilian filmmaker Nelson Pereira dos Santos with former Film Society programmer Richard Peña set to begin at Mo MA next month.

She also organized mid-career retrospectives of emerging filmmakers such as Carlos Reygadas and Nuri Bilge Ceylan.

The Nielsen retrospective, entitled “The Tenth Muse,” took place in 1996.

“The flavor of our programming will not change, and that’s because of her impact.” There will be a memorial for Jensen hosted by the museum announced at a later date.
