In 1975, aged only 25, Chantal Akerman revolutionized cinema with her masterpiece, «Jeanne Dielman, 23, quai du commerce, 1080 Bruxelles» . She continued to explore and invented many new forms in the art of cinema. She was a leading figure of what came to be known as modern cinema and she had a deep influence on many of the best contemporary film directors, from Hou Hsiao-hsien to Gus Van Sant.
To celebrate the "Journées de la Francophonie", the Institut français du Japon of Yokohama pays tribute to this extraordinary artist who passed away on 5 October 2015, with a presentation of her film «Jeanne Dielman, 23, quai du commerce, 1080 Bruxelles» and her last work «No Home Movie».
