Chantal Akerman by Chantal Akerman

Directed by Chantal Akerman • 1997 • Belgium, France
Starring Chantal Akerman

Produced for French television’s CINEASTES DE NOTRE TEMPS series, this revealing self-portrait from Chantal Akerman unfolds in two parts. First, Akerman, in her apartment, offers a deeply personal, sometimes funny, always thoughtful account of the problems she encountered making her films. Part two lets Akerman’s films speak for her, weaving together clips from her extensive filmography and linking them until they form a new film. The result is a radically original work that redefines the form of the artist documentary.
