FIAF celebrates the rich legacy of iconic Belgian filmmaker Chantal Akerman (1950-2015) known for several cinematic masterpieces and her substantial influence on feminist filmmaking. This exceptional homage will screen several of the auteur’s films including the hypnotic Almayer’s Folly starring Stanislas Merhar, offer a panel discussion led by film critic Nicholas Elliott, and culminate with Chantal?, a not-to-be-missed performance by her former partner, cellist Sonia Wieder-Atherton. The program was conceived in collaboration with French journalist Laure Adler.
