Event description

Description

To celebrate the publication Chantal Akerman’s My Mother Laughs (Ma Mere Rit) in English translation by Daniella Shreir by Silver Press please join us for a screening of Saute Ma Ville (Akerman, 1968, 13 mins) followed by roundtable discussion with Frances Morgan (author of introduction, My Mother Laughs), Albertine Fox (Bristol), Jenny Chamarette (Queen Mary), Ros Murray (King’s) and Sarah Shin (Silver Press), chaired by Clara Bradbury-Rance (King’s).

My Mother Laughs is both the distillation of the themes Akerman pursued throughout her creative life, and a version of the simplest and most complicated love story of all: that between a mother and a daughter.

This event is organised with support from Silver Press, the Faculty of Arts and Humanities at King's College London, and Herstoriographies: the Feminist Media Archive Research Network (see more here).
