Texte
In 2014, Ibro Hasanović met Chantal Akerman in Paris while she was preparing to visit Kosovo to screen some of her films, such as “La Captive” (2000) and “La Folie Almayer” (2000) at the Francophonie Week. This first encounter turned into a long and on-going conversation that included some draft ideas about a project based on reciprocal individual testimonials. This period coincided with the loss of Akerman’s mother who was an Auschwitz survivor. It can be clearly observed—through her works, interviews, and writings—that her mother, along with her Jewish background, was the core element not only for her works but also for her life. Hence, in November 2014, Chantal Akerman paid a visit to Pristina and they innately started the project with an interview that took place at her hotel room. The plan was to continue with a series of interviews where both Hasanović and Akerman were interviewed. They were unable to complete the project; sadly, Akerman took her life on 5 October 2015 in Paris. As a remanence of this unfinished project, “ON BELONGING - with Chantal Akerman from right to left” (2016) has autobiographical dimensions, reflecting on the sense of belonging by integrating anecdotes from her childhood in Brussels to her years in New York, talking about her inspirations, the role of literature, languages, and her writings. The work follows her in-between passages from places to genres, from narrations to fictive stories, from bodily engagements to the state of being on the move.
