This segment from the French television program “Les rendez-vous du dimanche,” hosted by Michel Drucker, features director Chantal Akerman and actor Delphine Seyrig discussing their work together on JEANNE DIELMAN. It originally aired on February 15, 1976.
JEANNE DIELMAN cinematographer Babette Mangolte was a longtime collaborator of Chantal Akerman’s, and also shot her films HÔTEL MONTEREY and LA CHAMBRE. This interview, in which Mangolte discusses JEANNE DIELMAN, was conducted in April 2009.
In this 2007 interview, an off-camera Chantal Akerman interviews her mother about her films. The producers of the interview originally intended to edit out Akerman’s questions but ultimately decided to keep them in to preserve the candor of the mother-daughter rapport.
