Saturday’s Q/A with Chantal Akerman cancelled

On behalf of the Public Programs Department and SFMOMA I’m sorry to announce that a family emergency prevents Chantal Akerman from joining us this Saturday,  February 28. She sends many regrets.

We will, of course, still screen the new 35mm print of Jeanne Dielman, 23 Quai du Commerce, 1080 Bruxelles at 1pm. B. Ruby Rich will introduce the film, and we’ve also added a small post-screening reception to celebrate the conclusion of the Akerman series. Hope you can join us for both.

Very sorry to report this news, as we were quite excited to host Chantal — but we certainly understand the necessity of her cancellation.

You can read more on Chantal Akerman and this film below.

Also, acclaimed film/media theorist Kaja Silverman will screen and discuss some of Akerman’s recent film and installation work Sunday at the PFA.
