CHANTAL AKERMAN, FROM HERE

Gustavo Beck & Leonardo Luiz Ferreira

Chantal Akerman, de ça is an uncut interview with the prestigious Belgian director. We hear Akerman’s reflections on her own work and method, as well as the influence of directors such as Jonas Mekas and Michael Snow, her relation with Proust’s novel which she adapted in La Captive (2000), and her failed attempt to venture into more commercial filmmaking. From the careful choice of the framing that gives an insight into the interviwee’s style, to the thought-through questions posed, stands out the genuine interest of Gustavo Beck and Leonardo Ferreira for life and work of Akerman, a director who stays true to herself up to the minor detail. Akerman who, even if she does not always satisfy the curiosity of her interviewers, shows herself in her idiosyncrasy, whether that means lighting a cigarette in a non-smoking building, or assessing the errors and successes of her filmography.
