Retrospective at Festival La Rochelle Cinéma (Fema)

From June 28 to July 7, the Fema will present 20 Akerman films from restored copies, from her New Yorker experimental years with Hotel Monterey (1972) to her final documentary following her mother in Brussels, No Home Movie (2015). The selection also includes the avant-premiere of the brand new restoration of Golden Eighties (1986).

A round table, hosted by Charlotte Garson (Cahiers du cinéma), will take place on Friday, July 5th, with the presence of Aurore Clément (actress), Stanislas Merhar (actor), Claire Atherton (editor), and Cyril Béguin (author of Chantal Akerman, Œuvre écrite et parlée, Ed. L’Arachnéen).

A reading of Chantal Akerman’s novel, Une Famille à Bruxelles, by Aurore Clément will take place on Friday, July 5th.
