Claire Denis - Confronting the OtherClaire Denis is one of the greatest filmmakers working in the cinema today - period. Her films are visually stunning, technically accomplished and thematically complex. And, in the words of Andrew Hussey of The Observer, she is “fearless”. Her solidarity with the disenfranchised and her sometimes frightening intelligence leads to incisive critiques of the way the personal and political become intertwined, but ultimately invites us to determine what lines are being crossed.
The series is sponsored in part by the Black Film Center/Archive, Department of Communication and Culture, Department of French and Italian, and IU Cinema. Special thanks to Institut français in France, Unifrance, Cultural Services of the French Embassy, Cultural Services at the Consulate General of France in Chicago, Jean-Francois Rochard and Delphine Selles.
Claire Denis will be present for events on November 10 & 11.
