Over 3-days in October, the MCA presents in partnership with Antenna Documentary Film Festival, a selection of bold and contemporary documentaries including a tribute to Chantal Akerman, one of the boldest artists and cinematic visionaries of all time.
Akerman made over 40 profound and unforgettable films before her death in 2015, spanning documentary, fiction, experimental, installation and essay film. Akerman holds legendary status among cinephiles as a cinematic radical, a formal innovator and a pioneer of modern feminist cinema. With an aesthetically idiosyncratic approach to the form, Akerman investigated geography, space and time, sexuality and religion, and chronicled and elevated the intimate and the everyday.
