Je, tu, il, elle Screening

October 8, 2017
7:00 pm
Berkeley Art Museum & Pacific Film Archive

As part of our Chantel Ackerman by Chantel Ackerman film series, we are screening Je, tu, il , elle. In her first feature, Chantal Akerman plunges into the themes--desire, longing, intimacy, and estrangement--that she would continue to plumb throughout her career. Akerman herself plays the lead role in the tripartite film. The first scene depicts the character in the self-imposed exile of her room clearing out the furniture, thinking, writing, and eating sugar. In the next section she hitches a ride with a truck driver who confides in her. In the third episode she arrives at the apartment of her reluctant lover and eventually they go to bed, their lengthy embraces a fleeting respite from solitude. Kate MacKay Kate MacKay
