Claire Atherton, editor and artistic collaborator of Chantal Akerman, talks about their years of collaboration in the video interview below. In their work together, they sought the balance between apparent opposites: structure and improvisation, intimacy and isolation, greater history and everyday life, being on the road and homeliness.

The video interview is a preview of the conversation between Atherton and Dana Linssen (NRC Handelsblad) on 3 July, in which they will delve deeper into the collaboration between Atherton and Akerman.
