Interview with Chantal Akerman

A video interview with the Belgian director discussing her films from the 1970s and her mother’s influence on her work.

I spoke with Chantal Akerman about her films from the 1970s, with special emphasis on their sounds and shot lengths, and on her mother's influence on her work. The interview, recorded in early November in a sunny Upper West Side apartment, is the second installment in a series of talks that will continue with Nathan Silver in December and Alex Ross Perry in January.

Fantastic interview. Her brief comments about sound and editing are wonderful.
