Guest Program - D’Est
Selected by Claire Atherton
“I remember editing the film D’Est together with Chantal Akerman. It was like a composition, both musically and visually. We were working on a sculpture of space and time, looking for the right rhythm. We cut the film the way Chantal had filmed it: following our intuition, without wanting to understand the process.” — Claire Atherton
