My Life With Chantal
Lecture by Eric de Kuyper, filmmaker, author and former deputy director of the Filmmuseum. He talks about his close collaboration with Chantal Akerman during projects such as La Captive (2000) and Demain on déménage (2004).
This summer, Eye Filmmuseum is presenting a major solo exhibition of work by Chantal Akerman. Akerman was one of the first film directors who made the switch to visual art. She rose to fame in the 1970s as a feminist avant-garde filmmaker, and midway through the 1990s, she discovered the possibilities of the art gallery.
