Autour de

Jeanne Dielman

(Sami Frey, 1975)

With: Chantal Akerman, Delphine Seyrig, Babette Mangolte, Eliane Marcus, Jan Decorte, Marilyn Watelet, Boris Lehman


Shot during the making of Chantal Akerman's Jeanne Dielman (1975), Autour de Jeanne Dielman was only edited together in 2013 by Akerman and Agnès Ravez from over 60 hours of footage taken by by Sami Frey, partner of the film's lead actress, Delphine Seyrig, and a rare man among the film's crew.

Autour de is a document of the highly collaborative process that built and fortified a monumental film. It is also an amusing, tender and sometimes tense portrait of two women at work: one an ambitious young filmmaker led by instinct; the other a seasoned feminist actress used to working under more conventional direction. Surrounding them is a cast of crew members, including cinematographer Babette Mangolte, who intervene and mitigate debates about topics such as the Jewishness of bedsheets and the role of eggs in the making of schnitzel.
