Editorial Reviews


“The project of estimating the relentlessness with which Akerman’s work is marginalized, yet also building the strongest fortifications against marginalizing it, is very handily realized in Gwendolyn Audrey Foster’s signally erudite and championing collection, Identity and Memory: The Films of Chantal Akerman.”Film Quarterly
