I Don’t Belong Anywhere: The Cinema of Chantal Akerman
Marianne Lambert

An experimental filmmaker and nomad, Chantal Akerman shares with us her cinematic trajectory, one that never ceased to interrogate the meaning of her existence. With her editor and long-time collaborator, Claire Atherton, she examines the origins of her film language and aesthetic stance, exploring some of the Belgian filmmaker's 40 plus films. From Brussels to Tel Aviv, from Paris to New York, this documentary charts the sites of her peregrinations. I Don’t Belong Anywhere includes excerpts from many films made throughout Akerman's career, including Jeanne Dielman, 23, Quai du commerce, 1080 Bruxelles (1975), News From Home (1976), Je, Tu, Il, Elle (1974), South (1998), From the East (1993), From the Other Side (2002), Là-Bas (2006), and, what would be Chantal Akerman's last film, No Home Movie (2015). "A career-spanning documentary [that] provides valuable insights.” (Variety)
