Chantal Akerman par Chantal Akerman

Chantal Akerman France, 1997

Jason's rating of the film Chantal Akerman by Chantal Akerman

This is the titular art-goddess's auto-portrait contribution to the reputable CINÉMA, DE NOTRE TEMPS series; a bifurcated excavation of the uneasy unconscious of a life's project. She begins by addressing the camera directly, framing what she does as at once personal and exploratory. The rest is a series of intercut clips of her work(s), suggesting that their meaning can only be revealed cumulatively + a posteriori.
