CHANTAL AKERMAN AT CINEFAMILY

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.

CHRIS KRAUS AND JILL SOLOWAY AT CINEFAMILY

It’s hard to imagine a better writer–director–producer to turn Chris Kraus’ I LOVE DICK into a limited-series than Jill Soloway. The creative force behind Transparent, as well as the 2013 feature Afternoon Delight, Soloway first attracted notice in Los Angeles with a truly subversive theater piece—created with her sister, Faith, and updated weekly—based on scripts from The Brady Bunch.*

At Cinefamily this weekend, Soloway, Kraus, and Kathryn Hahn, who plays “Chris” in the series, will present a free screening of the entire series, followed by a Q & A.

 

I LOVE DICK, Sunday, April 30, at noon. Free with r.s.v.p.:
