In memory of “a profound rule-free feminist”: the filmmaker Chantal Akerman

The screenings of the titles included in the Festival to remember the works and figure of the Belgian filmmaker Chantal Akerman, recently deceased, begin on Tuesday, March 7. Akerman, who was a member of the 2008 Festival’s jury, left behind “an original and rule-concession-free life’s work”, in Luis Miranda’s words, “a rule-free feminist in a deep sense.”
