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.
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), which the British Film Institute included in its list of 50 best films of all time.
Marianne Lambert initially worked as a location manager and assistant director before becoming production manager for Chantal Akerman on “Almayer’s Folly” in 2010. In 2014 she started making her first film – the documentary on Akerman’s work that was eventually released just a few weeks before the great filmmaker’s death in 2015.
