Chantal Akerman zikloa : Toute une nuit = Ciclo Chantal Akerman : Toute une nuit = Chantal Akerman series : Toute une nuit

The artist Marion Cruza has curated a series of ten films by Chantal Akerman that will be screened throughout January, February and March. In this third sessión of the series participants will watch Toute une nuit (1982). 

“A crash, a caress, a cuddle, 80 characters that come together and separate. Fragments, houses and apartments. Stays. Sidewalks. Gardens. Portals and balconies. Ballroom dancing in bars. With a suitcase or a backpack, with insomnia, in high heels. Sensual and loving flows. A storm. To shoot. And shoot and shoot.

La nuit est plus longue que le désir, la caméra est plus patiente que la nuit, la ville se réveille : Bruxelles va brusseler. (Serge Daney, Ciné-journal, éd. Cahiers du cinéma) (*). Serge Daney, Ciné-journal, Ed. De l’Etoile- Cahiers du cinéma.

*Daney mention’s here Jacques Brel’s Bruxelles, a song included in Les Bourgeois (1962) ”. Marion Cruza.
