Just before Belgian filmmaker Chantal Akerman (Jeanne Dielman, 23 Quai du Commerce, 1080 Bruxelles) committed suicide in 2015, documentary maker Marianne Lambert followed her from New York to Israel, capturing her final days. The result is an intimate, sometimes fascinating look at Akerman's nearly 50-year career as a major figure in feminist and avant-garde cinema. Clips of Akerman's signature long takes and architectural compositions, and commentary from actors and directors she influenced (such as Gus Van Sant), contribute to this insightful retrospective, which may challenge your notion of what movies are supposed to do. A natural storyteller with a musical voice, Akerman delivers anecdotes that fans and scholars may consider essential, though viewers unfamiliar with the language of experimental film may find them impenetrable. In French with subtitles.
