Chantal Akerman is widely regarded as one of the most important directors in film history. Since 1995 Akerman’s artistic practice has melded documentary filmmaking techniques with video installation. In his talk Akerman in Her Many Contexts, LVAC curator Bill Arning explores her work in the crossover genre of film and visual art.

This public program is presented in conjunction with the List Visual Arts Center’s exhibition Chantal Akerman:  Moving through Time and Space.
