Watch This: Chantal Akerman Discusses her Methods and Works


This Friday we begin our retrospective of the early films of the late Belgian director Chantal Akerman at the AFS Cinema. The farther we get from her early films, the more clearly we can see how influential they have been on the language of cinema, perhaps now more than ever before.

Here's a nice essay-style breakdown from Ricky D'Ambrose's Partisan Films Vimeo page featuring Chantal Akerman talking about her films and beliefs. It provides a helpful introduction to her values and themes.
