Cinema Orange | I Don't Belong Anywhere: The Cinema of Chantal Akerman

Free Fridays; no charge

I Don't Belong Anywhere: The Cinema of Chantal Akerman explores some of the Belgian filmmaker's 40 plus films--from Brussels to Tel Aviv and from Paris to New York, it charts the sites of her peregrinations. An experimental filmmaker, a nomad, Chantal Akerman shared with Marianne Lambert her cinematic trajectory, one that never ceased to interrogate the meaning of her existence. And with her editor and long-time collaborator, Claire Atherton, she examines the origins of her film language, and aesthetic stance.
