International Film Festival: “I Don’t Belong Anywhere” Preview

The SUU languages and philosophy department is hosting the annual International Film Festival from Jan. 29 to Feb. 10 in the Sharwan Smith Student Theatre, room 161D.

The festival will screen “I Don’t Belong Anywhere – The Cinema of Chantal Akerman,” a French language with English subtitles on Feb. 7 at 5 p.m. Director Marianne Lambert premiered this film in 2015 and Professor of English Todd Peterson will host an introduction and post screening-discussion.

Here is a brief description of the film from the film festival’s web page:

“‘I Don’t Belong Anywhere – The Cinema of Chantal Akerman’ explores some of the Belgian filmmaker’s 40 plus films, and from Brussels to Tel Aviv, from Paris to New York, it charts the sites of her peregrinations.

An experimental filmmaker, a nomad, Chantal Akerman shared with Marianne Lambert her cinematic trajectory, one that never ceased to interrogate the meaning of her existence. And with her editor and long-time collaborator, Claire Atherton, she examines the origins of her film language, and aesthetic stance.”
