On May 14, 1975, with the premiere at the Cannes Film Festival of Jeanne Dielman, 23, quai du commerce, 1080 Bruxelles, film history took a sudden, unexpected turn.

A masterpiece was born, and one among the greatest filmmakers and artists of our times became internationally known. Chantal Akerman’s cinematographic, literary and art works created before or after Jeanne Dielman remain among the most influential to numberless artists and the most inspiring to audiences across the world.

Chantal Akerman has been celebrated in the Google Doodle for May 14 2018.

Launched on the anniversary of that seminal projection in Cannes, this still skeletal website aims at becoming in the coming months a reference, and a key resource for all those who study, research, love, are inspired by or simply enjoy or want to discover Chantal Akerman’s oeuvre.
