Chantal Akerman / BE, FR, 1999 / 71 min.

Akerman's searing documentary about systemic racist violence in the American South is, sadly, as urgent and relevant now as when it premiered two decades ago. Akerman arrived in Jasper, Texas shortly after the brutal murder of an African American man, James Byrd Jr., by white supremacists.

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.
