Dear Chantal

Nicolás Pereda’s cinematic letter to Chantal Akerman is an imaginative exploration of a living space which is not really inhabited, a non-place of possible life. The short is built around the deceased director’s fictitious enquiry about renting a house. Pereda writes several letters to Akerman each dealing with banal necessities of renting, as the images of his sister cleaning the house as well as several digressions reflecting on art and cinema create a subtle echo of Akerman’s cinematic perception of being home and yet without it. It’s sad to know there won’t be any answer to this letter. (Patrick Holzapfel)

This film will be shown as part of the screening SHORT FILM PROGRAMME 1: INHERITANCES.
