Reading and screenings at Bozar Rooftop

On the weekend of June 22-23, join for a programme featuring the reading of Akerman’s autobiographical text Le frigidaire est vide. On peut le remplir by Belgian actress Natacha Régnier, accompanied by open air screenings of two of her comedies newly restored by CINEMATEK, Demain on déménage and Golden Eighties.

June 22, from 7.30pm

Natacha Reigner will be present at Bozar in the Bertouille rotunda to read extracts from Chantal Akerman’s text edited in the book Autoportrait en Cinéaste. The reading is followed by a screening of Demain on déménage on the rooftop of Bozar, the film which Akerman had finished and was on the process of being released when she wrote the autobiographical text.

“J’ai tant aimé faire ce film. Nous n’avons fait que chanter. J’aime chanter. C’est ce que j’aime le plus. Avec Sylvia, Aurore, Lucas, Natacha, Dominique, nous n’avons fait que chanter. Même Jean-Pierre s’y est mis.” (Le frigidaire est vide. On peut le remplir 2004).

The reading at the Bertouille Rotunda of Bozar, 7-8.30pm
Screening on the rooftop of Bozar, 8.30-10.45pm

June 23, from 7pm

Missed the chance to see the beautiful restoration of Golden Eighties with an audience? Catch the outdoors screening on the rooftop terrace of Bozar and (re)discover Akerman’s riotous Golden Eighties, a musical comedy like no other.​​​​

Employees and clients of a commercial gallery only live for love; they dream it, proclaim it, sing it and dance it. Experience the encounters, reunions, passions and disappointments of a malicious chorus of girls and a group of idle boys.

Screening on the rooftop of Bozar, 7.00-9.15pm
