Janine Bazin and André Labarthe approached Chantal Akerman about making a film for the series; eagerly, Akerman proposed a number of filmmakers—but all had already been done. So she suggested…“How about me?” Akerman creates a fascinating self-portrait that takes us through her career, aided by critics Emmanuel Burdeau and Jean Narboni and filmmaker Luc Moullet.

Screening with:
Philippe Garrel, Artist / Philippe Garrel, Artiste
Françoise Etchegaray | 1999 | France | 48m
Cited as “the best filmmaker of his generation” by directors ranging from Akerman to Benoît Jacquot, Philippe Garrel remains an alluring, somewhat enigmatic figure; this rare look at his world and his art was made right after the completion of his great “autobiographical tetralogy” that ended with The Phantom Heart.
