I Don’t Belong Anywhere: The Cinema of Chantal Akerman by Marianne Lambert (Belgium, 2015, 67 min.). Filmed before Akerman’s death in 2015, this documentary explores some of the nomadic filmmaker’s 40 plus films and charts her international travels, exploring the cities and spaces that influenced her work. Akerman shares with Marianne Lambert her cinematic trajectory, one that never ceased to interrogate the meaning of her existence. In conversation with her editor and long-time collaborator, Claire Atherton, she discusses the origins of her film language and aesthetic stance. 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), The Rendezvous of Anna, 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).
