Chantal Akerman, whom Jean-Luc Godard described as "a resistance fighter against the cinema of complacency" made over 40 films and video works (essay and slapstick, musical and monumental Kammerspiel, comedy and documentary) and installations, following a path that experimented in a complex and conceptual fashion with the visual and auditive language of film and was profoundly based in autobiography. She did this in such an idiosyncratic way that confronted audiences with her own perception and opened a generous space for memory, migration and trauma. As part of a UdK course, we are showing her minimalistic yet monumental JEANNE DIELMAN, 23 QUAI DU COMMERCE, 1080 BRUXELLES (B/F 1976), whose hyperrealismmade history, as did the acting of Delphine Seyrig and Babette Mangolte's camera work.
