Chantal Akerman by Chantal Akerman

1996, 63min, Digital

 

“One of the finest filmmakers working anywhere ... an excellent introduction to her work. A must-see.”
—Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader

Akerman turns the camera on herself to discuss her art and career—alongside selections of scenes from her wide-ranging filmography—in this cinematic self-portrait created as part of the esteemed French television series Cinéma, de notre temps. The result is a candid, enlightening, and often funny survey of her remarkable body of work.

 
J'ai Faim, J'ai Froid

With Maria de Medeiros, Pascale Salkin
1984, 11min, 35mm

 

Two teenage girls run away to Paris, where they quickly learn what it takes to survive. Akerman’s contribution to the omnibus film Paris vu par... 20 ans après blends deadpan comedy with serious feminist commentary.
