STUK joins hands with CON10UR on this special evening screening celebrating Chantal Akerman with the hommage film YOURS by 6 Belgian-based artists and filmmakers.
The CON10UR curators invited a group of artists to be inspired by the work of the well-known Belgian filmmaker Chantal Akerman. They specifically presented them News from Home, the 1976 feature film with two equal main characters: the island of Manhattan, New York where the director resides and her mother in Brussels who, through a stream of letters, demands increasingly urgent news.
The group was asked to make one film together: each with their own voice, style, and starting point. The result is no less than five different films within one kaleidoscopic film YOURS: Stone, Hat, Ribbon and Rose by Eva Giolo, Barefoot Birthdays on Unbreakable Glass by Rebecca Jane Arthur, When Things Fall Apart by Katja Mater, Un Âne by Sirah Foighel Brutmann and Eitan Efrat, and The possibility of being sea by Maaike Neuville. Details such as letters and metros, and themes such as dislocation, detached city life, alienation versus feeling at home, distance versus proximity, and the mother-daughter relationship echo Akerman’s films.
This filmscreening takes place in the context of Contour Biennial of Moving Images (9 Sep - 5 Nov, 2023)
