City College of New York and the Film Society of Lincoln Center present a free tribute to the late master Chantal Akerman. Belgian-born and Paris-based, Akerman was a cinematic visionary—among the most significant filmmakers of the last half-century. She was also a New Yorker who lived and taught in the city.
Chantal Akerman: New York Remembers will take place in the Walter Reade Theater and will feature films, music, and personal reminiscences. Speakers will include Jonas Mekas, Babette Mangolte, Andrew Bujalski, and more. The tribute will be followed by a reception in the Film Society’s Furman Gallery. The event is free and open to the public.
