Directed by Chantal Akerman
 
South (Sud)

1999, 71minBETASP

 

Akerman’s plaintive vision of the American South examines the hate crime killing of James Byrd, a black man dragged to his death from the back of a car by white supremacists in Jasper, Texas, a three-mile route that she chillingly retraces with her camera. Juxtaposing bucolic images of the rural South with details of the crime, South is an unsettling meditation on the relationship between landscape and America’s history of racial strife. An Icarus Films release.

 
Against Oblivion (Contre l’oubli)

1991, 4min, BETASP

 

Chantal Akerman, Sonia Wieder-Atherton, and Catherine Deneuve team up to mourn the murder of Salvadorean union activist Febe Elisabeth Velásquez in this short piece produced for Amnesty International.
