Women of Cinefamily present a weekend of screenings in their No Great Women Artists series, a look at how the Jill Soloway and Sarah Gubbins web series I Love Dick pays tribute to the work of filmmakers like Chantal Akerman, Sally Potter, Carolee Schneeman, and Naomi Uman.
In the 1970s, Akerman spent her early twenties in New York City and absorbed the cinema of Yvonne Rainer, Michael Snow, and Jonas Mekas. Returning to Belgium, Akerman crafted two of her greatest works: JE, TU, IL, ELLE (1974), and JEANNE DIELMAN, 23 QUAI DU COMMERCE, 1080 BRUXELLES (1975), both screening at Cinefamily.
