Dis-moi

Directed by Chantal Akerman
1980, 45min, Digital

 

In this exceptionally rare, deeply human documentary made for a French television series about grandmothers, Akerman tackles head-on a topic that long haunted the corners of her work: the Holocaust and its legacy. Speaking to elderly Jewish women who survived the Shoah, the filmmaker gives them space to share their memories, insights, and musings, yielding both a moving series of personal portraits and an invaluable record of Jewish cultural history.

 
Le 15/8

Directed by Chantal Akerman and Samy Szlingerbaum
With Chris Myllykoski
1973, 42min, DCP

 

The date is August 15. In an apartment in Paris, a young Finnish ex-pat (Myllykoski)—one of Akerman’s many “women on the edge”—talks unceasingly about her feelings of alienation and ennui. The director’s minimalist long-takes turn this arresting short into an almost clinical study of malaise.
