Directed by Chantal Akerman
 
The Man with the Suitcase

With Akerman, Jeffrey Kime
1983, 60min, Digital

 

Akerman stars in this seriocomic farce made for French television about a woman temporarily sharing her apartment with a young man. What begins as an odd-couple comedy—she’s short, he’s tall; she’s quiet, he’s loud; she’s introspective, he’s gregarious—becomes a disquieting study of social anxiety as the woman goes into a self-imposed exile to avoid interactions with her houseguest.

 
Le Déménagement

With Sami Frey
1992, 37min, BETASP

 

A man stands amid unpacked boxes in his new home, delivering an extended monologue on indecision and dislocation. This rarely seen, overlooked gem created by Akerman for television explores the quotidian crises and profound feelings of alienation that run through her work.
