6 June 2020 EYE Film Museum
The French actress Delphine Seyrig impressed as the lead in Jeanne Dielman, the film that was Chantal Akerman’s breakthrough. The filmmaker, who died in 2015, would have turned 70 today. In a tribute to Akerman, University of Amsterdam Professor of Film Studies Patricia Pisters focuses on the life and work of Seyrig, a major feminist figure in the 1970s who directed a number of feminist films.
