The Captive with Chantal Akerman


Screening introduced by Chantal Akerman

2000, 118 mins. With Stanislas Merhar, Sylvie Testud. Adapting part of Proust’s In Search of Lost Time, and inspired by Vertigo, Akerman dramatizes a man’s obsessive attempt to possess his lover, whom he keeps under constant supervision. The film retains the novel’s thematic and psychological density.

Free with Museum admission.
