MUBI's Spotlight on Chantal Akerman

"Allayer’s Folly" by Chantal Akerman

The subscription-based streaming website MUBI pays tribute to Chantal Akerman, who would have turned 70 this year, with the program "Remembering Chantal Akerman".

MUBI is showing two final films by the groundbreaking director that represent her remarkable range, along with a documentary about her life and process. The program is now playing until July 7 and includes:

Almayer’s Folly  (2011), Chantal Akerman's ambitious adaptation and subversion of Joseph Conrad.

No Home Movie  (2015) by Chantal Akerman, a profound reflection on family history and mother-daughter relations, echoing the evocative portrait of female domesticity of her first feature, Jeanne Dielman.

I don't belong anywhere: the cinema of Chantal Akerman  (2015) by Marianne Lambert (who worked on Almayer’s Folly), a personal exploration that ranges from Akerman's best known film, Jeanne Dielman, 23 Commerce Quay, 1080 Brussels, to discussing what ended up being her last, No Home Movie.

  • Two Ships  (2012) by Justine Triet (now showing until June 26)
  • Milla (2017) by Valérie Massadian (now showing until July 15).
